As Libya navigates its rocky transition, understanding Libya's historical experience of the constitutional drafting process is imperative. Chronicling the events that took place leading to the creation of an independent Libyan state, Adrian Pelt's Libyan Independence and the United Nations: A Case of Planned Decolonization narrates the process of decolonization, and offers the most detailed analysis available of the constitutional drafting process that occurred. This exhaustive volume highlights the extensive process undertaken by Pelt to seek the input of Libya's towns, regions, and tribes into what would become the country's foundational constitution.
