Abstract:The brutality of armed men against farmers and traders is not particularly new to students of Ethopian history. Peasant resistance, however, has been little studies. This article examines the general state of the peasantry as it confronted the state and its armed men, the efforts of the peasants to fight back when despoiled and the differing benefits derived by officers and men as imperial authority was restored and the empire's frontiers extended from the second half of the 19th century. Sections: the rural oppressed and their oppressors - peasant resistance and soldieir's hardships - soldiering and social mobility - the failure of two decades of reformism, 1916-1936. Map, notes.
