Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Harris (history, Howard U.) describes how African-Americans saw a symbolic microcosm of racial conflict and an analogy to their own struggle for freedom in Italy's military attempt to colonize Ethiopia in 1936-41, and how they organized protests, raised relief and support money, and even travelled to Ethiopia to join the resistance.
