Teshale Tibebu is a remarkable historian of ideas, interested in Ethiopia as a touchstone of the ideological, philosophical, and emotional aspects of pan-Africanism. [This book] shows how the struggle between a great African thinker [Blyden] and Eurocentrist racism forms a point of origin for the liberating forces that arose after his day and that are still at work in the themes of postcolonialism.
