From the Back Cover:

Ethiopia is an ancient state with a new constitution and a new beginning. The feudal monarchy that has been its distinctive feature since pre-Christian times has been swept aside. The short flirtation with communism and the civil war it spawned is also over. A new reality has emerged symbolized by, and reflected in, the constitution of 1994. A federal system of government has been installed and a democratic process is unfolding, propelling Ethiopia towards the mainstream of world civilization.

Fasil Nahum is well suited both academically and personally to bring out the first book on the Ethiopian constitution of 1994. The intricacies of federalism and the unfolding of democracy in this ancient land is handled in an interesting scholarly fashion. The book explores Ethiopian history since ancient times from the constitutional perspective and provides startling insights into the traditional unwritten constitution of historical Ethiopia. It is with this background that the present and the future of the third largest nation in Africa is constitutionally examined.
