Annotation: In "Forgotten Voices," Ali Abdullatif Ahmida employs archival research, oral interviews and comparative analysis to rethink the history of colonial and nationalist categories and analyses of modern Libya. He explores the ambiguities, failures, and silences manufactured by current colonial and nationalist scholarships, and he presents the voices of the Libyan people as they have confronted contradictions of modernity, the nation-state, and alienation in the contemporary nation. "Forgotten Voices" analyzes the context of power and human agency to capture the complex social history of Libyan peasants, tribesmen, women, slaves, and victims of fascist concentration camps in their diverse strategies for survival.
