Eritrea, the newest nation state in Africa, gained independence from the Ethiopian state after a prolonged and bitter conflict. This book is a comprehensive analysis of the country's political history over the past three decades. It examines the origins of Eritrean nationalism, and charts the development of its various nationalist movements, assessing the programmes and capabilities of the parties contending for power. It also analyses the regional and international context within which the battles for independence were fought.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A straightforward, competent account of the development and eventual triumph of the Eritrean independence movement." Foreign Affairs
"This book is an excellent contribution to the extant literature on Africa's newest independent state. It is remarkable in that, although it is written by an Eritrean national, it moves beyond the generally partisan and polemical pieces that tended to characterize discussions of the Eritrean question after the Second World War....this work is must-reading for students of the politics of the Horn of Africa." International History Review
"It is a fine piece of work...The Eritrean Struggle contain[s] valuable data and analysis which make this book important and timely...Ruth Iyob's book is an excellent contribution to the historiography of the Horn of Africa. The book is well researched and remarkably well written." The Historian
"It is a fine piece of work which introduces new data and new perspectives on Eritrea's successful struggle for independence....Ruth Iyob's book is an excellent contribution to the historiography of the Horn of Africa. The book is well researched and remarkably well-written." James C. McCann, The Historian
"Iyob's The Eritrean Struggle for Independance, 1941-1993 provides a clear introduction to the major external and internal political developments during the half-century struggle for Eritrean self-determination." Tom Killion, The International Journal of African Historical Society
