Arab Spring, Libyan Winter by Vijay Prashad
In this concise volume Vijay Prashad questions the Western interpretation of the political changes sweeping through Libya and the NATO-led intervention that precipitated the downfall of the Qaddafi regime. Far from being an altruistic humanitarian mission, Prashad argues, the Libyan incursion had more to do the desire to gain unconstrained access to the country’s vast oil wealth. Arab Spring sheds light on the neoliberal agenda at work in Libya and across the Arab world.
