School Library JournalGr 7-10-This biography examines the life and career of the longtime ruler of Libya. Qaddafi's amazing rise to power and his surprising philosophy are chronicled using numerous primary and secondary sources. The chaos of Libyan politics, coups, and relationships with other Middle East and African countries make up the bulk of the text. Sidebars enhance the basic information as do the black-and-white photographs that appear throughout. The book is up to date, as some sources are dated 2004. A useful choice for students doing research on present world leaders.-Elizabeth Stumpf, Clearfield Middle School, PA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
