by

Ethiopia, the Unknown Land: A Cultural and Historical Guide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A result of a lifetimes study of the mysterious country, this book is the first truly comprehensive work on the monuments and art of Ethiopia, as well as a literary companion to its land and history. Stuart Munro-Hay provides a valuable guide to the countrys architecture, geography, peoples, art, and history which covers all the major sites of the land from ancient times to the present.

Book News Annotation:

Though it might be used as a travel guide—tips and cautions are provided for the traveler—this deeply scholarly book will be read for the full picture it provides of the history of this ancient country. Munro-Hay (a researcher who's participated in archaeological expeditions) has organized the text by region and provides numerous color photos. He writes in great detail about the history, art, architecture, and culture of each area, covering ancient times, the Middle Ages, the colonial period, and on through the present. Distributed by Palgrave.
