The overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi has been one of the twenty-first century's defining moments: the Arab world's most bizarre dictator brought down by his own people with the aid of NATO aircraft. Lindsey Hilsum was in Libya when Gaddafi met his squalid end. She traces the history of his strange regime from its beginnings - when Gaddafi had looks, charisma and popular appeal - to its paranoid, corrupt final state. At the heart of her book, however, is a brilliant narrative of Libyan people overcoming fear and disillusionment and finding the strength to rebel. Hilsum follows five of them through the terror and tragedy.

This is the story of modern Libyan as it was lived, from the excesses of dictatorship to violent revolution. Sandstorm will take its place in a library of classic books about turning points of history.

Review:
'Hilsum, in her perceptive account of last year's revolution, argues convincingly that behind the buffoon, the haunting presence of Tripoli's Abu Salim prison was the true symbol of [Gaddafi's] abusive power.' --Graham Paterson, Sunday Times

'Hilsum has written a gripping account of the roots of revolution in Libya. Through extensive interviews with scores of Libyans before, during and after the conflict, she allows the people behind the revolution to tell their stories to the western reader. Her sharp analysis and careful piecing together of the story endow her work with qualities that will prove of lasting value to students of Libya's 2011 revolution.' --Eugene Rogan, Spectator

'A deeply moving account of the uprising against Gaddafi and a remarkable expose of the mad horrors perpetrated by his regime.' --William Dalrymple, The Herald Books of the Year

'[A] masterful account ... [Hilsum] produce[s] an account with historical depth to match dramatic reportage.' --Chris McGreal, Observer

'[An] impressive combination of vivid reporting and cool analysis.' --Guardian

'Hilsum draws on a wealth of first-hand reporting to explain the origins of the Libyan revolution.' --Sunday Telegraph

'From the slew of books on the Arab Spring, Hilsum's account of Gaddafi's fall stands out for background, detail and sheer readability.' --Independent

Book Description:
Sandstorm by Lindsey Hilsum is a stunning history of modern Libya from the award-winning Channel 4 and CNN journalist.
