Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Explore the fascinating culture of Ethiopia, a highly diverse nation built on the foundations of ancient kingdoms. Comprised of three major ethnic groups speaking over 70 languages and devoted to both Christianity and Islam, Ethiopia is Africa's second most populated country and a melting pot of traditions. Readers can discover Ethiopa's collection of written and oral stories, unique art and architecture inspired by royalty and religion, delicious cuisine, and many forms of music, dress, and dance. Readers will also learn about important changes in Ethiopia's social customs, attitudes toward women, and historically oppressive political system. With increasing freedom of speech and growing access to technology, Ethiopians are better able than ever to share ideas, art, and information not only with each other but the rest of the world. This detailed volume offers readers a glimpse into one of the world's oldest populations as it moves into the 21st century.
