Education, Politics and Social Change in Ethiopia focuses on the numerous problems that plague Ethiopia that directly stem from failed modernization and an unsuitable system of modern education. The book is comprised of articles from esteemed writers who focus on and analyze "the various facets of the impact of modern education from different disciplines and theoretical premises." Using Ethiopia's educational system as a starting point, the essays tackle issues of Ethiopian history, politics, and religion and use this multi-discplinary approach to to situate Western influence in Ethiopia in the modern era.

"Deploying the educational context as a background, the contributors—internationally prominent in their fields—wade through the complex maze of Ethiopian history, language, religion, politics, culture and gender. A must read by all those interested and engaged in Ethiopian education in particular and its persistent development challenges as a whole."
—Damtew Teferra, Ph. D., Director, International Network for Higher Education in Africa, Center for International Higher Education, Lynch School of Education, Boston College, Chestnut Hill, MA
"In a multi-disciplinary approach, this seminal work examines, among others, the role of western education, impact of being instructed in English, the invention and imposition of a new WoGaGoDa language in the South, and the national educational strategic plans. With scholarly rigor, eminent Ethiopian scholars offer to enlighten readers on the role of education over the last 100 years. I recommend this book to anyone interested to feed their “intellectual-soul” on education, development, and politics in Ethiopia."
