Prof. Abbas Gnamo’s new book, Conquest and the Resistance and Ethiopian Empire, 1880-1974 (The Case of Arsi Oromo), was successfully launched on March 9, 2014, in Toronto at the York University. According to sources, the March 9 book launch event in Toronto was well attended and became a moment to celebrate Oromo history and cultural heritage. The following is a brief report of the book launch event.
It’s to be noted also that Gadaa.com has called on book reviewers, especially young Oromo scholars, to write reviews of the new book by Prof. Abbas Gnamo. The book, with fresh perspectives on Oromo culture, history and identity, is available on Amazon.com or on the publisher’s website at Brill.com.
