Inhaltsangabe:

War cannot be separated from politics and in War and Politics in the Desert Saul Kelly completes the story of this fundamental episode in World War II by chronicling and analysing the key political debates in conjunction with the military and historical panorama. The future of Libya hung in the balance throughout this conflict but the military battles only tell half the tale so this book provides the previously untold political background. This account touches on the future of the Italian colony of Libya, as well as giving due importance to the tribes, sects and factions dwelling in Cyrenaica, Tripolitania and the Fezzan, and their fundamental role in the development of Libya towards independence in 1951. A prologue and an epilogue excellently summarise the preceding and following periods to place the story firmly within its historical context. The extensive bibliography is invaluable for those wishing to further their knowledge. With newly drawn maps taken from WWII sources and many black-and-white and colour photographs, some not previously published, this is not only a compelling and intellectually stimulating read but also a vivid one. The twists and turns of the politics of the war in the desert in War and Politics will be fascinating not only to those involved in the war but also to historians, politicians, military specialists and all readers interested in this period or geographical area.

Inhaltsangabe: In recent years there has been a renewed interest in the War in the Desert, that epic struggle of the Second World War between Axis (Italian and German) and Allied (principally British Commonwealth) forces for control of North Africa, from 1940 to 1943. The current literature concentrates on the military battles, but war cannot be separated from politics: War and Politics sets out to fill this void by chronicling and analyzing the key political debates. For the first time, Kelly describes the political background to the future of the Italian colony of Libya, and the tribes, sects and factions dwelling in Cyrenaica, Tripolitania and the Fezzan, and their fundamental importance in the development of Libya towards independence in 1951. A prologue and an epilogue excellently summarise the preceding and following periods to place the story firmly within its historical context. The extensive bibliography is invaluable for those wishing to further their knowledge. With newly drawn maps taken from WWII sources and many black and white and colour photographs, some not previously published, this is not only a compelling and intellectually stimulating read but also a vivid one. The twists and turns of the politics of the war in the desert in War and Politics will be fascinating not only to the participants at the time but to historians and all readers interested in this period or geographical area.

Anbieterinformationen: We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
