Integration and Peace in East Africa A History of the Oromo Nation by Tsega Etefa

Integration and Peace in East Africa A History of the Oromo Nation


Integration and Peace in East Africa A History of the Oromo Nation by Tsega Etefa

This book analyzes the development of indigenous religious, commercial, and political institutions among the Oromo mainly during the relatively peaceful two centuries in its history, from 1704 to 1882. The largest ethnic group in East Africa, the Oromo promoted peace, cultural assimilation, and ethnic integration.


'Occasionally, an inspiring book emerges that captures our imagination through the richness of its sources, the depth of its analysis, the freshness of its interpretation, and so eloquently expressing the unique role the Oromo population played in the history of Eastern Africa. Such is Dr. Tsega Etefa's Integration and Peace in East Africa: A History of the Oromo Nation. The publication of this book will enrich, expand, and widen our understanding of the dynamic role the Oromo nation played in Eastern Africa, which hitherto has been neglected in the literature on Ethiopia and Kenya. This is an invaluable book on Oromo history and will remain in demand for years to come.'
Mohammed Hassen, Associate Professor, Department of History, Georgia State University
