This authoritative overview serves as a comprehensive resource on Eritrea's history, politics, economy, society, and culture.

Located in eastern Africa, bordering the Red Sea between Djibouti and Sudan, Eritrea is a poor but developing East African country, the capital of which is Asmara. Formerly a province of Ethiopia, Eritrea became independent on May 24, 1993, following a 30-year struggle that culminated in a referendum vote for independence.

Written materials on most aspects of Eritrean history and culture are quite scarce. Eritrea fills that gap with an exhaustive, thematically organized overview. It examines Eritrean geography, the history of Eritrea since the ancient period, and the government, politics, economy, society, cultures, and people of the modern nation. Though based largely on the documentary record, the book also recognizes the value of oral history among the people of Eritrea and incorporates that history as well. Leading sources are quoted at length to provide analysis and perspective.


Numerous photographs and illustrations of types of vegetation and population distribution

Includes maps of Eritrea physiography, drainage, and transhumance paths

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Despite Eritrea's complex history, Tesfagiorgis (Univ. of Winnipeg, Canada) succeeds in presenting the material clearly in language that is accessible to general readers. In many respects, this work is similar to a specialized encyclopedia. Though it is geared toward general readers, others, including academic librarians and lower-division undergraduates, will find it to be a valuable reference tool. . . . Summing Up: Highly recommended." - Choice
