Dirk Vandewalle on Gadhafi’s World

Dirk Vandewalle, an associate professor of government at Dartmouth College, gives an inside look at Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi and his 42-year rule. Vandewalle has studied and written about Libya since the 1980s. In 1986 he lived in Libya for 14 months, the only Western scholar there at the time.

Note: sorry about the 10 minute discussion of Gadaffi’s wardrobe. But it is kind of interesting insofar as his attire is symbolic of his self perception and eccentricity.

Guided questions are here.
