Dr. Gebre-Medhin’s book, “Peasants and Nationalism: A Critique of Ethiopian Studies,” was the first major challenge to claims casting Eritrea as a subsidiary of Ethiopia, its neighbor in northeast Africa.The book provoked heated debate among political factions and drew favorable reviews from other scholars. This book and the rest of his works mainly informed and set as an agenda by external powers still remain to be the guiding philosophies of ethno-nationalist forces both in power and struggle in Eritrea and Ethiopia,especially TPLFites.Such devious scholars needed to be restudied their misguided and subjectively biased works need reinvestigation by stakeholders.Western philosophers take the highest share for toady’s racism and human inequality,so do biased and double agent Ethiopian and Eriterian scholars for the mess in the region and these two states.
Here is one quote of him to corroborate my premises,
“The empire Menelik and Haile Selassie constructed was built on sand, without a solid foundation; hence it was always in a trend of progressive decomposition. Is a Shewan-Amhara Ethiopian Empire viable? History answers this in the negative.The Ankoberite insanity will be tempered by the solidarity of the oppressed masses in New Ethiopia and the working unity of New Ethiopia and independent Eritrea 1.”
