Summary
  • "The book compares and contrasts the African American and Oromo movements in the global context. It shows how life chances changed for the two peoples as the modern world system developed and became more complex. This global system racialized exploitative structures in African American and Oromo societies and facilitated the national struggles of these two peoples. This work demonstrates the dynamic interplay between social structures and human agencies. African Americans in the United States of America and Oromos in the Ethiopian Empire developed their respective liberation movements in opposition to racial/ethnonational oppression, cultural and colonial domination, exploitation, and underdevelopment
  • The book also explores the structural limit of nationalism and the potential of revolutionary nationalism in promoting self-determination and a genuine multicutural democracy."--Jacket
