A Political History of the Tigray People’s Liberation FrontA comprehensive and critical study that seamlessly integrates the theoretical issues of ethnic self-determination with real life events, processes and empirical observations of the complex history of the TPLF.

Bold, critical and insightful in its treatment of the political, ideological and personal struggles that marked the long and arduous road of the TPLF from a few individuals to a triumphant political and military force, the book provides a detailed account of TPLF’s history. Central moments in this account include the inception of the TPLF, mass mobilization, the role of ethnic ideology, the creation of the Marxist-Leninist League and its influence on the TPLF, the vicissitudes of its internal political life, the ups and downs of its relations with the various fronts in Tigrai, Eritrea and other parts of Ethiopia, the political orientations and military strategies that guided its actions, and, eventually, its successful capture of state power.
