Readers interested in the cultural aspects or who are planning to visit Ethiopia will find a wealth of entries on art, literature, handicrafts, music, dance, wildlife, geography, and historic tourist sites. Practitioners in government and nongovernmental organizations will find entries on pressing economic, social, and political issues such as the HIV/AIDS epidemic, female circumcision, debt, human rights, and the environment. The important historical role of missionaries and the combination of conflict and cooperation between Christians and Muslims in the region are also reviewed. And, finally, many of the dictionary entries highlight relations between Ethiopia and its neighbors - Eritrea, Somalia, Somaliland, Djibouti, Kenya, and Sudan. The bibliography includes both new and old materials covering all facets of Ethiopia, organized by areas of major interest for easy identification."--Jacket." ;
