CSUSB professor emeritus reviews book by Ethiopia’s prime minister
Oct. 2, 2019
Alemayehu G. Mariam, CSUSB professor emeritus of political science, wrote in his weekly column about the newly released book, “Medemer,” by Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.
“This review is intended for the benefit and convenience of English-speaking audiences who have a sincere desire to understand and rigorously critique ‘Medemer’ philosophy for what it is and is not,” Mariam wrote. “It offers the reviewer’s personal reflections and perspectives on the Medemer idea or philosophy and aims to invite others to review the book and thoughtfully discuss its usefulness and relevance to Ethiopia.
“In nearly fourteen years of uninterrupted weekly commentaries, I have done only one other book review. ‘Medemer’ is my second book review. I prefer to read/review books that have intellectual integrity, are thought-provoking and bring fresh perspectives.”
