While official news coming out of Libya is scarce right now, we thought we’d bring to your attention to the sharpest political travelogues from the country in the last few years.

Essential Reading on Libya

First, there’s Michael Moynihan in Reason magazine with "A Libyan Charm Offensive: To the shores of Tripoli with the son of Qaddafi." Moynihan also has a new piece in Reason today, "The End of a Libyan Crime Family."

Next there’s Michael Totten’s "In the Land of the Brother Leader"  and a photo tour of Libya, too. And here, Totten reminds us that maybe the Qaddafis haven’t gotten out of the terror industry after all.

Stay tuned to this space, where we’ll keep filling out the Libya bookshelf as items come to our attention.
