But how did they rise to such power, and what does that power mean or the people of that land? In The Ogaden, author Jama Mohamed Ghalib challenges myths of Ethiopian imperialism and sheds some light as to how the Abyssinians collaborated with European colonisers in the scramble for the African continent.
