Ethiopia : empire in revolution by Marina Ottaway( Book )

11 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ethiopian revolution is considered the first great revolution to take place in black Africa. The momentum for social and political change, which had been steadily increasing in the last years of Haile Selassie's rule, gathered unexpected speed as a series of military protests broke out in early 1974 and suddenly erupted into a national groundswell of revolt. Joined by students, workers, bureaucrats, teachers and other discontented forces in Addis Ababa, the capital city, the military forced the government to concede to demand after another. Though cabinets were changed, salaries raised and political reforms promised (though never really delivered), the aged and now feeble emperor proved unable to respond effectively to the situation. He was deposed in September, and the ancien regime collapsed. Marina and David Ottaway, correspondents for the Washington Post, lived through the revolutionary events in Ethiopia until their expulsion by the Provisional Military Government in mid-1977. Their contacts with government and military circles in Addis and their travels throughout the countryside to investigate provincial conditions gave them an unusual and particularly valuable vantage point from which to observe these developments. They carefully chronicle the unfolding of events, both among discontented troops and the urban citizenry in Addis. They trace the evolution of the government's socialist ideology, the harsh application of nationalization decrees and sweeping social and economic reforms, and the resistance the government encountered from obstinate minority and corporate groups. As the revolution continued, revolts erupted on the right, among feudal remnants, and on the left, among political idealists. As the empire was rocked by ideological concerns, the country's major ethnic groups - Gallas, Somalis, Afars, Tigreans and not the least, Eritreans, whose war of liberation began in 1962 - strengthened their separatist drives against the government in Addis Ababa. Social tensions in the countryside, where secondary and university students were sent to instruct the peasantry in the ways of socialism, and in the cities, where political organizations of bewildering ideological strains engaged in bitter factional disputes and assissinations, persuaded many observers to believe the revolution would consume itself. The Ottoways provide rich details on these fascinating events and give clues to the survival of the first "great revolution" in black Africa. -- from dust cover
The king's messenger : Prince Bandar bin Sultan and America's tangled relationship with Saudi Arabia by David Ottaway( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of the last thirty years in the complex relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia centers around its principal actor: Prince Bandar, the controversial longtime Saudi ambassador. These two very different societies have been bound together since 1945 by vital national security interests, based on a simple quid pro quo: Saudi oil at reasonable prices in return for U.S. protection of the House of Saud from foreign foes. However, the balance of the relationship has been fractured by recent events. Not since the 1979 Islamic revolution in Iran has the House of Saud felt itself in such peril, and the Saudis have not forgotten the inability, or unwillingness, of the United States to save the Shah. Prince Bandar is the first Saudi royal to serve as ambassador to Washington, and journalist Ottaway's frequent access to the prince has allowed him unparalleled insight into the complex geopolitics that govern Saudi Arabia's long dance with the United States.--From publisher description
The Arab world upended : revolution and its aftermath in Tunisia and Egypt by David Ottaway( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the autocratic regimes in the seemingly unassailable police states of Tunisia and Egypt suddenly collapsed in 2011, the Islamic parties that took over quickly succumbed in turn to further massive uprisings, this time by disaffected secularists and, in the case of Egypt, with the support of the army. What explains this? And why do the current regimes in both countries remain so fragile? Addressing these questions, drawing on years of first-hand, in-depth research, David Ottaway explores the causes of the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt, the reasons for their radically differing outcomes, and the likely trajectory of the two countries' political development
