Gonzi and Malta’s break with Gaddafi. Recollections of a Premier is the first hand account of Malta’s former Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi of the Libyan crisis. The book offers a unique journey through the hard and defining decisions taken during the crisis.
In gripping, never-heard-before detail, Prime Minister Gonzi brings readers inside Gaddafi’s Bedouin tent a few days before the revolution started; inside his Office the minute the Mirage Jets landed in Malta and the ensuing negotiations with Libya; over the phone with European Prime Ministers; meetings with Gaddafi’s representative; during discussions with the Libyan National Transitional Council; during European Council Summits and in the Government Crisis Centre during delicate rescue operations that were underway in the Libyan desert.
Gonzi, and Malta’s break with Gaddafi. Recollections of a Premier will captivate readers, present exclusive photographs and documents and offer unique insights into Malta’s role in the crisis – from the man who was at the centre of it all.
Following lenghty interviews, Dr Joseph Cassar, former Ambassador to Libya, vividly recounts the unique story lived by Dr Gonzi during the Libyan crisis.
