Nationalities and the state in Ethiopia: an interpretation

This volume deals with the history of Ethiopia, particularly with the imperial regime of Haile Selassie (1917- 1974), the military intervention which ended Haile Selassie’s reign, resulting in the reign of the Dergue. It describes the struggle of the various nationalist movements from Tigray, the Ogaden and Eritrea, against the Ethiopian regime. The author concludes that a military solution is not a realistic option for resolving Ethiopia’s manifold national conflict. In the concluding section the author draws some lessons for Africa.
