More About This Textbook


The essays collected in these New Trends volumes represent an innovation in International Conferences of Ethiopian Studies. They are timely and current, and they are affordable for student, scholar and official alike. They reveal the wide variety of Ethiopian studies and scholarly concerns about the country. They sum up whole fields of study and indicate where researchers might usefully accomplish more work in the future. Many of the essays are cautious assessments of difficult problems; others treat controversial topics with judicious forebearance; not a few are redolent with political pitch; and some are chronicles or narratives. Altogether, they demonstrate that Ethiopian studies are alive and well and surviving the various political shocks of the post-imperial era.
