While the world taps its feet, Ethiopia breakdances with its shoulders. This is an uplifting, inspirational country which confounds expectations. It’s no featureless desert but a land of majestic landscapes surrounding a vast, fertile plateau. The rock-hewn churches in its medieval capital, Lalibela, are regarded by many as the eighth wonder of the world. Its people are welcoming, proud and besotted by their own culture and history. Bradt’s Ethiopia is the most thorough guide available to this country rich in culture, history and dramatic scenery, and has been highly praised by both travel press and readers.

‘Thorough and reassuring, it provides all the practical and background information to make readers leap from their armchairs and visit this vast, magical country’
The Daily Telegraph (UK)

Outstanding. Recommended to me by a veteran traveller.
We're here in Ethiopia. Most people use Bradt's and those who haven't got it wish they did. Excellent maps. I have the 6th edition. All information is spot on, as much as is possible in a country founded on negotiation.
