Reason and faith. There is a lot of discussion about this relationship. Saint Augustine said that reason was not necessary, faith would be enough for man. St. Thomas Aquinas recognized the importance of reason to bring man closer to God. André, as I know him, is not a "Thomist", but he mastered very well this second operation. His book fulfills the interesting role of uniting faith and reason, religion and science. He speaks fluently on biblical passages and on how they would have manifested in the peoples of Ethiopia. By doing so, he traces historical records - something from science - at the same time that he unravels his beliefs in biblical teachings. In this singular work there are references to imperialism, to the World Wars, to African decolonization. We also have precious informations about the presence of cannabis in human history, as well as about healthy eating, not determined by economic-industrial interests. Having a wealth of analysis, André still contemplates us with biographical incursions on Bob Marley, not forgetting to present an explanation on the peaceful and involving rhythm of reggae. But I will say no more, so as not to delay the beginning of this motivating reading. Clayton Avelar - Historian

Global historical events are too often recounted exclusively through European and American voices. African Voices of the Global Past explores six major historical developments of global significance - the Atlantic slave trade, industrialization, colonialism, the World Wars, decolonization, and the development of modern feminism - from an African perspective. Voices emerge throughout the text in the form of primary sources that explore the personal accounts of individuals. These enable students to look beyond the indistinct figures of Africans in European and American accounts to see the people directly involved and affected by the major global changes they experienced. Featuring contributed chapters from renowned scholars, many from the continent of Africa or the African diaspora, African Voices of the Global Past offers a unique view of global history from a traditionally overlooked perspective. This book is a perfect supplement for world history and African history instructors seeking to relate a compelling narrative of major world events.

Assault On Rural Poverty

In Assault on Rural Poverty, Haileleul Getahun analyzes the various causes of rural poverty and constraints impeding increased agricultural productivity during the last four decades in Ethiopia, under three different regimes. Getahun examines the feudalistic system under Emperor Haile Selassie, the command economic system of the military junta led by Mengistu Haile Mariam, and the current capitalist system of the Federal Republic of Ethiopia led by Meles Zenawi. Getahun discusses the lessons drawn from Ethiopian experience during these three regimes, as well as from other African and Asian countries. These provide the basis for recommending a small farmer-led agricultural and rural development strategy that, if implemented, would alleviate rural poverty in Ethiopia. The author maintains that the keys for successful development are the provision of institutional savings and credit for small-scale farmers and small business owners; the deep involvement of the community in project planning, implementation, evaluation and sharing of the benefits; and the use of development support communication for motivation, information dissemination, and training. Getahun argues strongly that ethnic politics in Ethiopia are destructive to Ethiopian society and militates against sustainable development. Rather, the path to peace and sustainable development requires that ethnic politics be scrapped and replaced by a genuinely democratic and widely acceptable system of governance.
