Ethiopia is one of the oldest countries in the world. Beginning with the Aksumite Empire, this book traces the country's expansion southward during medieval times, its resistance to Muslim invasion, and, under energetic leaders, the defense of its independence during the European colonization of Africa. Rather than exploring only the major figures--kings, princes, and politicians--this volume also includes insights on daily life, art, architecture, religion, culture, customs, and observations by travelers.
