    Author: Professor Desta, Asayehgn
    Dr.Desta Title: 1 International Political Risk Assessment for Foreign Direct Investment and International Lending Decisions

    The book is designed to meet the needs of academicians and students, practitioners, and government policymakers. For academicians and students, the book presents a comprehensive conceptual framework for assessing country risk. The conceptual framework is based on a thorough review of the literature on political/country risk that is scattered over a wide range of publications. The book should be a useful text on political/country risk or international business environment analysis for upper division undergraduate and graduate classes in international business. For the corporate strategies and government policymakers, the book is designed to provide a multidisciplinary but pragmatic approach to country risk analysis for foreign direct investment, international lending decisions and mapping out the impacts of joint ventures on host nations without overlooking theoretical framework in economics, business, political sociology, and international relations. Given the apparent fact that corporate strategies and government policy makers need a road map to uncertainty, the book is germane to satisfy that niche.


    Title: 2 Environmentally Sustainable Economic Development. Westport, Connecticut: Praeger 1999.

    Concerning the book, Professor Fran Lepage of Dominican University notes that “professor Desta’s book meets the needs of both the novice and specialist in the field. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the linkages between economic development and sustainable development.

    Title: 3 The Saga of African Underdevelopment: A viable Approach for Africa’s Sustainable Development in the 21St Century, co-authored with Tetteh Kofi. Trenton NJ: Africa World Press, Inc. 2008.

    The book examines in careful detail the economic conditions in Africa during the pre-colonial and colonial periods. The authors ague eloquently that most of the development paradigms that were used to transform African economies, under free trade imperialism or under colonial and post colonial periods were incompatible with the African system of thought and traditional production systems or mode of production. Following this, they propose a bold development strategy to reverse the dismal economic performance of African countries in the post independence period. In summation, the proposed development model is presented by the authors as the vehicle by which to raise adequately on the African continent the level of human capital development among small producers in the agricultural sector whilst encourages small cooperative investments in industries. This strategy would rescue the African continent from some of its inappropriate models of development and put the continent on the right path. The cooperative, people-centered development paradigm which the book proposes for Africa’s development in the twenty-first century is not intended as a move for African isolationism but to enable the African continent achieves sustainable development in which the African people are designers and the main actors in the development process.

    Title: A Political History of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front
    Author: Dr. Aregawi Berhe

    Dr. Aregawi

    A Political History of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (1975-1991): Revolt, Ideology, and Mobilisation in Ethiopia, is a comprehensive and critical study that seamlessly integrates the theoretical issues of ethnic self-determination with real life events, processes and empirical observations of the complex history of the TPLF. Its author, Aregawi Berhe, received his doctorate in Social Studies from the Vrije University in Amsterdam. He is also one of the founders and a former commander of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), the revolutionary movement that overthrew and replaced the Dergue—the military dictatorship that ruled Ethiopia. In this book, Aregawi unpacks the history of the TPLF and discusses its origins in the Ethiopian student movement, its organization in Tigray and the mobilization of its inhabitants, the creation of a peasant army, the factional struggles within the TPLF, its relations with other liberation movements, and, ultimately, its success in capturing state power. Using this history as a guideline, Aregawi handles significant areas of theoretical dispute regarding ethnic self-determination and its various interpretations, which he deftly articulates with a critical and comprehensive discussion of the complex issues that arise from the protracted struggle to overthrow a repressive military regime (the Dergue) with a peasant-based guerilla movement.

    Title: When Northern Elephants Fight Over GMOs ...
    Author: Tewolde Berhan Gebre Egziabher
    Location:Vol.30 No.98 (December 2003), pp650-653
    When Northern Elephants Fight Over GMOs ...

    Description As the world's attention was focused firmly on the Cancun World Trade Organisation summit in September, an important international agreement quietly made its entry on the world stage, holding out immense implications for developing countries. The Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, which aims to regulate trade in genetically modified organisms (GMOs), came into force on 11 September after five-year-long negotiations over trade advantages and disadvantages - intractable North-South issues that are set to continue to bedevil the Protocol's implementation. This is highlighted most forcefully by the US move to take the European Union to the WTO dispute settlement mechanism over the EU's insistence that US exporters clearly label all GM food sold to Europe

    Title: Dead Ends And New Beginnings
    Author: P.Minster Meles Zenawi

    The political and economic renaissance of Africa is an issue that continues to preoccupy Africans' and non-Africans alike. Various methods of achieving such a renaissance have been proposed. Most of these proposals are variations of the dominant neo-liberal paradigm of development. My argument is that the neo-liberal paradigm is a dead end, is incapable of bringing about the African renaissance, and that a fundamental shift in paradigm is required to bring about the African renaissance.

    Title: The Origins of the Tigray People's Liberation Front
    Author: Dr. Aregawi Berhe

    The Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), at its inception, was grounded in an ethno-nationalist consciousness generated by the cumulative grievances of Tigrayans against successive central governments of Ethiopia. An association of Tigrayan elites, the urban-based Tigrayan National Organization (TNO), prepared the groundwork for the formation of the TPLF. The TPLF, for its part, utilized class and ethnonationalist ideologies to mobilize Tigrayans until it ousted the Mengistu government in 1991. This article analyzes how this ethno-nationalist organization emerged, grew and finally came to dominate Ethiopia — a state with an emerging multi-national character.

    Title: Tigress in the Crossfire
    Author: Saba Mitslal Dest

    Once I started to read this book I found it hard to put down. It starts with the innocent story of a poor little girl growing up in Adwa in an average family with father, mother, sisters and brothers. It is written in the first person and she tells us of how she used to play with the neighborhood children, goes to school, but all of a sudden, looses her mother due to some unexplained fever while on the way to the hospital.
