Ethiopia is one of the oldest countries in the world. This book traces the country's expansion southward during medieval times, its resistance to Muslim invasion, and, under energetic leaders, its defense of its independence during the European scramble for Africa. The author is concerned not only with kings, princes and politicians but also includes insights on daily life, art, architecture, religion, culture, customs and observations by travelers.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"All in all, this book makes interesting reading, and should suit both scholar and general reader alike..." - International Journal of African Historical Studies

"... this is a timely study of a country still much in the news." - Kirkus Reviews

"The great merit of Paul Henze's new history of Ethiopia, Layers of Time, is that it makes you dream even as it stays very firmly in the realm of verifiable facts." - Washington Times
