About this Item

Reprint Edition. No DJ. Inked name on half title page: William Shack (1923-2000), professor emeritus of anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley, and dean emeritus of the graduate division. A prominent scholar of African cultures, Shack was known internationally for his pioneering fieldwork on the Gurage people of Ethiopia and for a series of books on African society. No other markings in book. Very slight shelf wear to book edges. The confrontation between Italy and Ethiopia at Adwa was a fundamental turning point in Ethiopian history. After Adowa, Ethiopia became emblematic of African valour and resistance, the bastion of prestige and hope to thousands of Africans who were experiencing the full shock of European conquest and were beginnng to search for an answer to the myth of African inferiority.
