Example text

Why does the dominant image of Italian fascism as benign persist in the public media and scholarly studies when compared with Nazi Germany’s model of fascism? 2. What are some of the moral and scholarly flaws of this myth of Italian fascism? 3. How does recovered evidence of Arab genocides between 1929 and 1933, along with oral narratives of some of the 100,000 victims of Italy’s concentration camps in Libya, undermine common misconceptions concerning the nature of Italy’s brand of fascism? While none of these questions may be answered definitively here, the material presented in this chapter sheds light on the actual record of Italian fascism and could reorient current historiographic views.

As Tripoli’s courts, banks, schools, and markets gained in importance, urban institutions began to replace tribal institutions. The Tripolitanian regional economy was, thus, in transition from a communal and self-sufficient tributary trading economy to a mixture of tributary and capitalist economies. Capitalist penetration, while strong in coastal and eastern Tripolitania, did not affect seminomadic tribes, who continued to reproduce their tributary social relations. Fezzan was much more affected by the decline of the Sahara trade, since its historic importance derived from its rich and strategic transSahara trade markets.

When the Ottoman army conquered Tripoli in 1551, it targeted the rich Fezzan economy, which could provide tributes of dates, gold, and slaves. Further, the Ottoman state needed to ensure the flow of trade caravans to Tripoli City. Conflict was inevitable between a tributary empire and a regional state. Eventually, the Ottoman army was sent to Fezzan to demand a yearly tribute to the state in Tripoli. However, because the Ottoman state in Tripoli had only a small army between 1551 and 1711, a pattern persisted in its relations with the sultans of Awlad Muhammad: whenever the state in Tripoli weakened, the Awlad Muhammad refused to pay tributes.
