Ethiopia since the Derg: a decade of democratic pretension and performance
The Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) came to power after winning an impressive military victory over the army dictatorship of Mengistu's DERG just a decade ago. This volume is the outcome of an intensive monitoring, based on empirical research over the intervening years in various parts of Ethiopia, of the growing gap between the new regime's democratic intentions and the very different outcome. Focusing in particular on the elections held in 2000 and 2001 but also providing a more wide-ranging presentation of issues and context, the contributors focus on various aspects, including gender dimensions, urban and rural contrasts, class and caste conflict, and environmental factors.
