Abstract

“Libya: From Repression to Revolution: A Record of Armed Conflict and International Law Violations, 2011-2013”, is an impressive work, edited by M. Cherif Bassiouni, Emeritus Professor of Law and Honorary President of the International Human Rights Law Institute at DePaul University College of Law. This voluminous work is grounded on reports submitted by the United Nations Commission of Inquiry on Libya (UNCIL), and on the International Institute of Higher Studies in Criminal Sciences' (ISISC) analysis of the violations of the norms of the human rights law in seven regions of Libya that experienced the heaviest clashes between Gaddafi forces and the Thuwar (insurgents) during civil war in Libya between 2011 and 2013. It consists of a general introduction by the editor, and 15 chapters in two main parts, providing analysis of the compiled data contributed by Douglass K. Hansen, Jesse M. Franzblau, Sara Parikh Drar, and Angela Mudukuti.
