Selections from the Green Book of the late dictator of Libya better known as GadhafiIn his day it was intended as the equivalent of Mao's Little Red Book. It begins with a streong denunciation of parliamentary democracy. ( )

The personal philosophy of Muammar Qaddafi. What more needs to be said?

A few quotes might illustrate the feel of the book more than any review:

"...those attempts do not aim at the radical and ultimate solution of man, which is the necessity of owning his own house...No one has the right to build a house, additional to his own and that of his heirs, for the purpose of renting it..."

"In need freedom is latent."

"It is an undisputed fact that both man and woman are human beings. It follows as a self-evident fact that woman and man are equal as human beings. ... [2 pages later] ... All these innate characteristics form differences because of which man and woman cannot be equal."

If nothing else, this book is of real historical value, and reading it helps shine some insight on the recent history of Libya.
