In this concise history of Ethiopia, Harold Marcus surveys the evolution of the oldest African nation from prehistory to the present. This study demonstrates that there is more to Ethiopia's existence than colonial logic. It shows how geography, economics and culture have served to unite Ethiopians against fractionalisation.

For the updated edition, Marcus has written a new preface, two new chapters and an epilogue, detailing the development and implications of Ethiopia as a Federal state and the war with Eritrea.

This fascinating book is incredibly in depth in it's contents, with over three chapters on Haile Sellassie’s reign:

1. Beginnings, to 1270
2. The Golden Age of the Solomonic Dynasty, to 1500
3. The Decline of the Solomonic Dynasty, to 1796
4. Political and Economic Transformations, to 1855
5. Imperial Resurrection, to 1877
6. Imperial Consolidation, to 1889
