Michael Bunter, the author of this 180 page monograph, is an English petroleum geologist who lived and worked in Libya (1968-1970) in the oilfields during the critical last years of the Idrisite monarchy. He was there during the Ghaddaffi coup and also through the first year and a half of the new Ghadaffi government. This was a time when radicalism was to change the world of Libyan and north African oil and gas fundamentally.

In this completely new work the author recounts the complex politics of Libya and also its history and attempts to relate current events to the evolution of Libyan geopolitics.

This monograph is aimed at the new ventures groups of the international oil and gas industry, at other current and future investors in Libya and north Africa, to consumer-country opinion-formers as well as to public and private oil and gas consumers, and to others who may need to take long-term views on developments in Libya. It is a companion to the 350 page book "The Libyan Petroleum Industry in the Twenty First century: the Upstream, Midstream and Downstream Handbook"

Amongst little-known incidents dealt with in this monograph are:

Mr Bunter provides a political history of Libya from Ottoman times to the present and shows how Mediterranean geopolitics have informed this obscure, fascinating and potentially important country.
