A history of Ethiopia by Harold G Marcus ( Book )
20 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and held by 1,761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this readable and concise history of Ethiopia, Harold Marcus surveys the evolution of the oldest African nation from prehistory to the present. Based on a thorough reading of post-World War II scholarship, Marcus demonstrates that there is more to Ethiopia's existence than the ambitions of any one group. While Ethiopia has from time to time separated into component parts, it has never disappeared as an idea and has always reappeared in fact. Marcus concludes that now, as in the past, geography, economics, and culture will, in the end, prevail in uniting Ethiopia's diverse peoples against the forces of ethnic and religious factionalization
Haile Sellassie I : the formative years, 1892-1936 by Harold G Marcus ( Book )
18 editions published between 1986 and 1998 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Always controversial during his lifetime (1892-1975), Haile Selassie became, after his dethronement in 1974, a political icon to some, a monster to others, and to all a legend. There is no understanding modern Ethiopia without a grasp of the Emperor's life. This first volume of a projected three-volume biography describes Haile Selassie's early training as a member of a cultural and political elite, a conditioning that led him to believe it was normal for an elite (later an oligarchy) to govern and exploit Ethiopia, even if many of its peoples did not benefit from the prevailing order. Once he became emperor, he viewed himself as the embodiment of Ethiopia's proud sovereignty and independence. Haile Selassie was the architect of the centralized Ethiopian state. He transformed Addis Abeba, his ramshackle capital, into a core city; educated a cadre of "Young Ethiopians"; and developed the central government. He managed his country's political and economic entry into the modern world and in the process made Ethiopia the central actor in Northeast Africa and himself a global figure. Between 1920 and 1935 Ethiopia made important and obvious progress toward modernization, which Italy regarded as potentially threatening to its African colonies. Haile Selassie, ever jealous of his country's sovereignty, redirected trade away from Europe toward Japan and the United States. By so doing he robbed France of a good economic reason to protect Ethiopia from Italy, he alienated Great Britain, and he permitted Rome to contemplate his nation' s conquest. By 1934 Ethiopia was without allies and without the means to counter the Italian aggression. The Emperor suffered defeat, exile, and despair, but he would return in 1941, as a phoenix, to restore the status quo ante. - Back cover
