Why was Ethiopia not colonized during the late-nineteenth century 'Scramble for Africa'?

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Explanation why Ethiopia was not conquered by European states in a time when they easily invaded almost all other remaining independent countries in Africa. The reason is found in an age-long sound agricultural structure, enabled by favorable environmental conditions, and a concomitant age-long process of state-formation.
