Overview

Yohannes IV of Ethiopia: A Political Biography by Zewde Gabre-Sellassie, Zewde Gabre-Sellassie

Since 1855 Ethiopia has had four remarkable emperors who have left a deep mark on the evolution of the Ethiopian polity over the past 120 years. Yohannes IV (1872-89) alone has not hitherto had serious and sustained scholarly attention, and this lacuna has now been most worthily filled by Dejazmatch Dr. Zewde Gabre-Sellassie's present study. The work embodied in this book represents the fruit of long study and profound knowledge of the events and personalities of the time on the part of the author. There is little doubt that the combination of western scholarly methods and profound acquaintances with Ethiopian sources and the authentic indigenous ambience makes this a work of exceptional interest and fascination.
