The author meets and tells the stories of people caught up in the Libyan crisis of 2011. Some of these people are Libyan citizens, but many have traveled from other parts of Africa, fleeing conflict in their home countries. Visiting refugee camps and war-ravaged cities, meeting locals and migrants, school children and militia men, the author helps give these people a voice and show the human face of migration and war. Blending these human tales with historical and political analysis, the book is part in-depth journalism, part-travelogue. Relevant, necessary, and very interesting.
