Explores the recent history of Libya, isolated since Colonel Qaddafi seized power thirty-five years ago.

Explains that Libya has recently been trying to rejoin the rest of the world and is using its vast oil reserves to woo back former foes, especially the United States. Examines why Qaddafi is suddenly renouncing terrorism, nuclear weapons, and socialism and asks what these changes may really mean.
