Item description for Eritrea and Ethiopia: The Federal Experience by Tekeste Negash...
This book examines the rise and fall of the Ethio--Eritrean federation which existed from 1952 to 1962. The author argues that the federation was abolished by Eritrean social and political forces rather than by Ethiopia. The UN imposed federation and its constitution was doomed to fail, as these were foreign to Eritrean and Ethiopian conceptions of power.

VALUE LESS!! Apr 16, 2001
This book is a product of a person who does not know what he is saying. Please nobody should weast his time reading this ethiopist ideas.
Excellent! Oct 15, 2000
Excellent presentation. The book focuses more on passing on facts (excelent footnotes and appendix) to the reader than giving analysis of events and their significance from the author's point of view. It definitely sheds a new perspective of the beginning of the Ethio-Eritrean war. There is not much about TPLF, but there's an interesting coverage of rise and fall of ELF and the rise of EPLF. As strange as it may sound, the book also makes you appreciate that the war was carried out as it was. It makes you appreciate the Ethio-Eritrean civil society.
