A comprehensive analysis, this book examines all the justifications and myths about the war on Libya and methodically dismantles them. It delineates the documentary history of events, processes, and decisions that led up to the war while underscoring its resulting consequences. Arguing that NATO's war is part of a larger process of militarising U.S. relations with Africa-which sees the development of the Pentagon's AFRICOM as being in competition with Pan-African initiative-this account shows that Western relations with a "rehabilitated" Libya were shaky at best, mired in distrust, and exhibiting a preference for regime change.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Slouching Towards Sirte is a penetrating critique, not only of the NATO intervention in Libya, but of the concept of humanitarian intervention and imperialism in our time. It is the definitive treatment of NATO's war on Libya. It is difficult to imagine it will be surpassed." Stephen Gowans, What's Left November 9, 2012.

"Forte's allegations that NATO's war was manufactured by liberal interventionists and "iPad imperialists" whose agenda to disrupt African independence and execute regime change under the "fig leaf" of saving lives are chilling--and persuasive. ... Even though Forte couches descriptions of Gaddafi in amorphous, guarded language, he isn't an apologist. In this provocative and unabashedly direct book, Forte speaks truth to power." - Amy O'Loughlin, ForeWord Reviews
