Three Thousand Years of Habesha History and Discourse

(p.23) 1 Three Thousand Years of Habesha History and Discourse
Abyssinia's Samuel Johnson

Wendy Laura Belcher

Oxford University Press

The first chapter lays out the ancient basis for the claims for exceptionality of the Ethiopian highlanders who call themselves the Habesha, from their ancient empires through their early modern ones. The historical record indicates not only that the Habesha have been central to world history, but also that they have been engaged for millennia in convincing powerful outsiders to recognize and respect them.

Keywords:   Ethiopian exceptionality, Ethiopian discourse, Habesha history
