David Turton, Ethnic Federalism: The Ethiopian Experience in Comparative Perspective. Ethiopia has over 80 ethno-linguistic groups and a long history of ethnic conflict. In 1991 Meles Zenawi's government replaced the previous military regime, the Derg Nepal. The ethnic aspect of a new federal structure in Nepal has been a source of contention through the g process of recent years.

Since 1991, Ethiopia has gone further than any other country in using ethnicity as the fundamental organizing principle of a federal system of government. And yet this pioneering experiment in 'ethnic federalism' has been largely ignored in the growing literature on democratization and ethnicity in Africa and on the accommodation of ethnic diversity in democratic states. Apart from giving close examination to aspects of the Ethiopian case, the book asks why the use of territorial decentralization to accommodate ethnic differences has been generally unpopular in Africa, while it is growing in popularity in the West. The book includes case studies of Nigerian and Indian federalism and suggests how Ethiopia might learn from both the failures and successes of these older federations. In the light of these broader issues and cases, it identifies the main challenges facing Ethiopia over the next few years, as it struggles to bring political practice into line with constitutional theory, and thereby achieve a genuinely federal division of powers.
