History of Ethiopia - Updated Edition

History of Ethiopia - Updated Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this eminently readable, concise history of Ethiopia, Harold Marcus surveys the evolution of the oldest African nation from prehistory to the present. For the updated edition, Marcus has written a new preface, two new chapters, and an epilogue, detailing the development and implications of Ethiopia as a Federal state and the war with Eritrea.

Synopsis:

A broad but concise and extremely readable history of Ethiopia from prehistory through today. New material makes it the most up-to-date history available in one volume.

Synopsis:

Surveying the evolution of the oldest African nation from prehistoric to modern times, this study demonstrates that there is more to Ethiopia's existence than colonial logic. It shows how geography, economics and culture have served to unite Ethiopians against fractionalization.

Synopsis:

"A very ambitious work. . . . Its readability will insure a wide audience. . . . Specialists will be alternately outraged, amused, engaged, and challenged."—James McCann, Boston University
