Socialist Students in Ethiopia. The Ethiopian student movement was one of the most influential student movements in history, because of its profound and long-lasting influence on Ethiopian politics, including the events that led to revolution in 1974. Although it may in many aspects be seen as part of the global 1968 movement, it grew out of domestic factors. The book provides a highly necessary corrective to Western bias in the literature on 1968 and is relevant far beyond Ethiopian historiography.

Series: Eastern Africa Series. The Ethiopian student movement produced a number of organizations both at home and abroad. Bahru Zewde, himself one of the students involved in the uprising, draws on interviews with former student leaders and activists, as well as documentary sources, to describe the steady radicalisation of the movement, characterised particularly after 1965 by annual demonstrations against the regime and culminating in the ascendancy of Marxism-Leninism by the early 1970s.

The introduction offers a systematic survey of the existing literature on student protest, Ethiopian and otherwise, with a focused critical response to Messay Kebede's recent Radicalism and Cultural Dislocation in Ethiopia, which treats that country's student movement from a different disciplinary perspective. 2 Bahru contends that Messay is insufficiently attentive to the underlying structural or material causes of student discontent, overly.

In the second half of the 1960s and the early 1970s, the Ethiopian student movement emerged from rather innocuous beginnings to become the major opposition force against the imperial regime in Ethiopia, contributing perhaps more than any other factor to the eruption of the 1974 revolution, a revolution that brought about not only the end of the long reign of Emperor Haile Sellassie, but also a dynasty of exceptional longevity. The student movement would be of fundamental importance in the shaping of the future Ethiopia, instrumental in both its political and social development. Bahru Zewde, himself one of the students involved in the uprising, draws on interviews with former student leaders and activists, as well as documentary sources, to describe the steady radicalisation of the movement, characterised particularly after 1965 by annual demonstrations against the regime and culminating in the ascendancy of Marxism-Leninism by the early 1970s. Almost in tandem with the global student movement, the year 1969 marked the climax of student opposition to the imperial regime, both at home and abroad. It was also in that year that students broached what came to be famously known as the "national question", ultimately resulting in the adoption in 1971of the Leninist/Stalinist principle of self-determination up to and including secession. On the eve of the revolution, the student movement abroad split into two rival factions; a split that was ultimately to lead to the liquidation of both and the consolidation of military dictatorship as well as the emergence of the ethno-nationalist agenda as the only viable alternative to the military regime.

This book is a must read to understand the struggle for change in Ethiopia that was part of the global wave of the 1960s and 70s carried over by young people in virtually all regions of the world. Bahru Zewde writes history with such prose and skill, it reads like a novel - a page turner. It will, no doubt be especially enjoyable by those who were young (and active) during the 1960s, leading up overthrow of Emperor Haile Selassie and the subsequent political turmoil of the Derg regime.

Thoughtful. Readable. A coherent and in-depth analysis of one of the momentous movements in Ethiopian history.
