New PDF release: Ethiopia: through writers' eyes

By Yves-Marie Stranger

Ethiopia is one in all just a handful of nations that surprise the visitor with their precise viewpoint. those locations wake up a deep experience of ask yourself and provide a unprecedented chance to monitor the realm from a unique perspective, to work out issues anew. Ethiopia: via writers’ eyes is the correct significant other to any exploration of this idiosyncratic state, be it from the precarious saddle of an Abyssinian mule, or the cozy folds of an armchair. A compendium of all issues Ethiopian, with excerpts translated from writings in a few languages together with Amharic, the publication peoples the land with a caste of priest-kings descended from Solomon and Sheba, and with a few of the eccentric adventurers who've been drawn there: Jesuit explorers and missionaries, silly would-be conquerors and writers of all stripes.
