Almost unnoticed, in the wake of the overthrow of Emperor Haile-Selassie, the coming to power of the military, and the ongoing independence struggle in Eritrea, a band of students launched an insurrection from the northern Ethiopian province of Tigray. Calling themselves the Tigray Peoples Liberation Front (TPLF), they built close relations with Tigrays poverty-stricken peasants and on this basis liberated the province in 1989, and formed an ethnic-based coalition of opposition forces that assumed state power in 1991.

This book chronicles that history and focuses in particular on the relationship of the revolutionaries with Ethiopias peasants.
