Editorial Reviews


“This shattering study, based on remarkable scholarship, not only brings to light the long-suppressed genocidal policies of the Italian Fascist state but also leads to serious rethinking of how colonial history is framed and of the origins of the horrendous Nazi crimes. A powerful and revealing work.” Noam ChomskyMassachusetts Institute of Technology

"Ali Abdullatif Ahmida’s volume on the Libyan genocide is a masterpiece of oral history. This narrative recaptures the full texture of a great but little known atrocity. The prose and the poetry of folk memory as well as the crosscurrents of regional variation are gripping and unforgettable. A people’s suffering have been truly honoured here." James C. Scott, Yale University

"Based on oral, archival and published documentation, Ali Abdullatif Ahmida provides a damning condemnation of Italian colonialism in Libya and of the scholarship that so far has overlooked the scope and significance of the genocidal violence which enabled it. A genuine contribution to the literature on Libya, on colonialism and on studies of genocide."Mahmood Mamdani, Columbia University

"The book is a masterpiece of scholarly skill and dedication. It tells the story that many Libyans have known and have not been able to tell the world. Combining archival research, ethnographic field work, penetrating theoretical insights, and personal testimony, Ahmida has written a book that I’ve longed to read but never imagined possible until now. I am deeply grateful for this book." Khaled Mattawa, University of Michigan

"Ali Abdullatif Ahmida gives voice to the victims – and resisters – of a forgotten modern colonial genocide. Their recollections in poetry and prose provide eloquent, visceral testimony to suffering and, always, perseverance. Official narratives will no longer reign – and imperial statues should topple." Joel Gordon, University of Arkansas

"He [Ahmida] succeeds in revealing a long-obscured and gruesome past through the reminiscences of his own elderly relatives, the disciplined excavation of suppressed official archives, the interpretation of long-recited epic poetry, and the creative deployment of comparative histories of genocide, war, and imperialism.[...] Ahmida’s account is important, however, and should provoke consequential debates about the long, dark shadow of history in North Africa." Lisa Anderson, Foreign Affairs

Author-interview podcast by Jeff Bachman, American University, New Books Network
