The overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi was a defining moment of the early twenty-first century. Lindsey Hilsum, International Editor for Channel 4 News, was an eyewitness to the revolution. In "Sandstorm", she traces the history of Gaddafi's strange regime from its beginnings - when he had looks, charisma and popular appeal, and posed as a kind of socialist revolutionary - to the massacre at Abu Salim prison, and the paranoid, corrupt final state. This is the Libyan revolution as it was made and lived; a narrative of how the people overcame fear and disillusionment to find the strength to rebel against years of terror and tragedy.

Lindsey Hilsum is an internationally respected and admired communicator from the world's most dangerous flashpoints. She is International Editor for Channel 4 News. She has covered the major conflicts and international events of the past two decades. She spent most of 2011 covering the Arab Spring, primarily in Libya but also Egypt and Bahrain.Review:
""Sandstorm" is a passionate but measured account of why the battle for Libya happened, how it played out and what may be yet to come. By hanging the distressing but often inspiring stories of a group of Libyans around the central figure of the colonel, she gives a rounded and readable snapshot of extraordinary change in a closed country that few international journalists could claim to have known well before last year's events."--"Financial Times"
