Green Book

A 1975 book by Muammar al-Qaddafi advocating a "third way" between capitalism and communism. The Green Book rejects republicanism in favor of direct democracy and promotes a form of socialism based on Islam and Arab nationalism. The Green Book reflected the governing philosophy of Libya, though critics contend that the country in fact was a dictatorship under Qaddafi.
