2010 0-7734-1387-1 As a relatively new urban landscape, Addis Ababa possesses a rich cultural history that continues to develop today. Drawing on numerous first-person accounts of Addis Ababa from its inception to the present day, as well as the author's own field research, this work traces the development of the city from a military camp to the fastest-growing city in Africa. Careful attention is given to all elements of Addis Ababa, including its people, customs, geography, economy, psychology and its place in global culture. This book presents a holistic and diachronic view of the city and sets the stage for further analysis as the urbanization of Addis Ababa continues to evolve.
