The Green Book
- This article is about The Green Book, the doctrine of Muammar al-Qaddafi. For the compact disc standard, see Green Book.
It consists of three parts:
- The Solution of the Problem of Democracy: 'The Authority of the People'
- The Solution of the Economic Problem: 'Socialism'
- The Social Basis of the Third Universal Theory
The book is controversial because it completely rejects modern democracy and encourages the institution of a form of direct democracy based on popular committees. Critics charge that Qaddafi uses these committees as tools of autocratic political repression in practice.
There are several translations in English and several authorized and unauthorized editions by several publishers in several countries. An English translation is available from the Libyan government, and there are digital versions (see below) available.
