Abstract:The chapters in this book were originally published in the 'Journal of Eastern African Studies', vol. 5, no. 4 (2011). They explore differing aspects of Ethiopia's political experience since 1991. The papers fall into four subject categories, addressing the new foundational formula of 'ethnic federalism' cum 'revolutionary democracy' advocated by the post-1991 EPRDF (Ethiopian Peoples' Revolutionary Democratic Front) government, and its impact on collective identities and inter-group relations; electoral and opposition politics in the context of a dominant party-State; various related societal changes regarding the role and place of religious communities, the independent press and local-level politics; and Ethiopia's international positioning. Contributors: Jon Abbink, Fekadu Adugna, Jean-Nicolas Bach, Rony Emmenegger, Dereje Feyissa, Assefa Fiseha, Tobias Hagmann, J÷rg Haustein, Asnake Kefale, Sibilo Keno, Terje ěsteb°, Nicole Stremlau, and Sarah Vaughan.
