    I have not read the book, but I will do so. I have found the review quite appetizing.

    Dr Messay does have a way of making abstract ideas easily consumable. His proposal of a developmental state with a reformed government in Ethiopia is, in my opinion, the only hope for Ethiopia, aside from an uprising.
