Ethiopia: A View from Within

Cover
Janus Publishing Company Lim, 2005 - 425 Seiten
Providing a definitive explanation of modern history in Ethiopia, this book covers the last century up until 1994. It attempts to explain for the hundreds of thousands Ethiopians who emigrated to the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe what happened in Ethiopia after the deposition of Emperor Haile Selassi. The changes that have taken place in Ethiopia over the past century are described, and a range of issues of historical importance as well as issues still important in Ethiopia today--the flora and fauna, the wildlife, and customs of Ethiopia now and in the past--are examined in great detail.
