Ethiopia: Breaking new ground

Ethiopia: Breaking new ground

Ratings: (0)|Views: 358|Likes:
Published by Oxfam
This book celebrates the rich cultures of an ancient society, and describes its people's efforts to revive their land. Times are hard: the years of war, drought, and political oppression in the 1980s left soils exhausted, schools and hospitals derelict, and communities fragmented. But the first edition of this book (Ethiopia: Breaking New Ground), published in 1995 described a diverse and resilient nation in the process of rebuilding itself.
