Ethiopian Transitions: At Home and Abroad (Combined edition) – Book Review

About the New Book

This book covers a wide range of subject matters such as social, religion, politics, and all other community matters that could become even more complex without appropriate action is taken. It emphasised how the Ethiopian political landscape is changed, how the Ethiopian churches and the Ethiopian Community Organizations in America changed to be competitive, and how the Ethiopians changed from self-proclaimed culture to mixed society are few of the main transitions this book is focusing about. No matter what the topic is, the author prose is marked by honesty, clarity. Wit and it is full of insight supported by practical examples about the Ethiopian Diaspora and people who still coming to the USA to prove whom they are and who they want to be.

Published by Allwright and Publishing Company, this book is intended to give a fresh look at the Ethiopian Diasporas’ social history. Since nothing is free from challenges, the transitions have also its own drawback.To read all these and related community affairs, here is the scoop of the new book written by author and freelance writer Kebede Haile. His educational and life experience biography is stated in the book. Previously, the author has published four books, numerous articles and essays about the Ethiopians in America. Though fully abreast of the latest information in the area about which he writes, he focused in this volume on the current practical meaning of his topic for the general prospective readers.

The book is a combined edition of English and Amharic. The book presents ideas that probably will be familiar to many readers. It addresses the current issues about which the author argue that social, religion, and political-life brought divisive sentiments among the community. It also contained number of different opinions. This book is a compilation of essays that focuses on the current affairs of the Ethiopians in America/Diaspora with a detailed examination of key areas of various contemporary issues such as day-to-day life of the Diasporas everything from politics to the community’s social life and causes of division in the Ethiopian religion and civil organizations. May be, because of the unevenness of the each chapter, the reader might wonder if the book has sufficiently unraveled the complexity of the Ethiopian identity, beliefs, and values.

A chapter is designated to the unresolved contention issues that rolled in the years of dialogue between the Ethiopian government and opposition parties. The millennia’s’ responsibility to strengthen the Ethiopian Community Associations in America is also stated. How the role of educational institutions, parents and teachers contributions is important towards the society is briefly covered.

The author is conscious that his views may not be unanimously accepted but will be happy if any disagreement generates healthy discussion on each subject. The author strongly believes that the existed divisive rhetoric should be siezed. As its picture shown below, the book is a hard colored cover with 285 pages. The book is available for public sale on Amazon website and in the Ethiopian stores in the US.
