No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. It clearly states or suggests that the book is about the period of Gaddafi’s rule (Pariah State) – post September 1969. Undoubtedly, the book could be read objectively by a great many readers – who in turn could quite rightly offer differing opinion. John Oates, who worked in Libya before the 1969 coup, charts the country's history from the Romans to Gaddafi - encompassing oil barons, Lockerbie, surveillance and mass murder, it is a chilling tale of power, corruption and lies. He is currently using his diaries recording his life as a boarders' House Master in Reading School to explore the link between boarding schools and imperialism.

John Oakes, who lived and worked in Libya for eight years before the revolution, provides an essential guide to the country and its history, including what led Gaddafi to make Libya an international pariah and the events of the 2011 revolt. The book is made up of 179 pages – but much to my surprise Gaddafi’s chronological antecedence as a child and young man continue (after Libya’s history) to page 125 – leaving little room for the period of September 1969 and onward - for which Gaddafi is ultimately renowned.

Describes a book or dust jacket that does show some signs of wear on either the binding, dust jacket or pages. The remaining 54 pages are an equal disappointment – in my honest opinion the detail is of little interest and nothing more than a ‘cut and paste’ of information already well known and well documented.His latest book, War Lord, examines the events leading up to and following the fighting in Libya triggered by the Arab Spring. When the oil-rich Kingdom of Libya descended into corruption and irresolution, a young Libyan army officer named Muammar Gaddafi seized power in a brilliant coup on 1 September 1969. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Although there is an historical degree of interest contained within the first half – most of the informative detail is acknowledged from ‘other authors and their respective books’. However, more than the first half of the book gives a history of the country from pre Roman times and there onward.
