This book is interesting in that it covers the last 25 years. It appears that the author has been fed a lot of information by the Government (access to the PM and ministers) which he has too readily accepted without question. The book lacks an analytical rigour in that there is no clear theme. Instead the chapters are written in an anecdotal way. On the positive side, Peter Gill does know and understand the country well.

This book is an interesting account of the various famines which have affected Ethiopia since the 1970s and brings to light the the difficult relations between national bodies and international agencies who mainly seem to be working to different agendas.
Also highlighted is the numbers game of in flating problems,particularly by NGOs, that are desperate for a piece of the cake.
While ETHiopia has made reasonable strides in famine reduction via aagriculture and directed aid tyh problem has spresd to Somalia where conditions are severe and made worse bycivil unrest.
The author gives credit to China for the execellent work it is undertaking in building Ethiopias infra sttucture.
An excellent well researched book but is in need of pictures and statistical tables.
