is a historian and geopolitical expert, whose books incude La rovina antica e la nostra (Aracne, Rome, 2006), Il -dissenso- nella sinistra extraparlamentare italiana dal 1968 al 1977 (Rubbettino, Soveria Mannelli, 2010), Libia 2011 (Jaca Book, Milan, 2011) and Divide et Impera. Strategie del caos per il XXI secolo nel Vicino e Medio Oriente (Mimesis, Milan, 2013). Sensini has also curated key works by Bruno Rizzi, Ante Ciliga, Josef Dietzgen and Sergej Mel'gunov for publication in Italian.
It is rare for a historian to write a history of a significant
issue and bring it into the present time; even rarer when the work
coincides with the reemergence of that issue on the world stage.
Paolo Sensini has done just that with Sowing Chaos: Libya in the
Wake of Humanitarian
Intervention. It is a revelatory historical analysis of the exploitation and invasion of Libya by colonial and imperialistic powers for more than a century... Sowing Chaos is a superb book. If you wish to understand the ongoing Libyan tragedy, and learn where responsibility lies, read it. If the tale it tells doesn't disgust you, I'd be surprised. -- Prof. Edward Curtin, GlobalResearch
