Editorial Reviews


Edward Kissi's analytically stimulating Revolution and Genocide in Ethiopia and Cambodia is a fruitful comparative study probing deeply beneath surface appearances to shed new light on key differences between the revolutions in Cambodia and Ethiopia and their atrocious consequences. After reading his nuanced comparisons, no reader will ever again be satisfied with glib generalizations about the similarities between the revolutionary regimes of Pol Pot and Mengistu. (Prof. Frank Chalk, co-author of The History and Sociology of Genocide and co-director, Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies at)

Kissi has produced a provocative and engaging comparative masterpiece that genocide scholars as well as historians of Ethiopia and Cambodia will find informative and fascinating....Kissi deserves commendation for augmenting the Ethiopian side with oral interviews and newspaper accounts. (African Studies Review, September 2008)

Edward Kissi's pioneering comparison of the Cambodian and Ethiopian revolutions makes an important contribution to the study of modern genocide as well as to that of comparative Third World politics. It is a close, careful, scholarly assessment of contemporaneous disasters in two kingdoms on different continents, and reveals interesting commonalities and differences in their societies and the regimes that almost destroyed them, the Khmer Rouge and the Dergue. (Ben Kiernan, director of the Genocide Studies Program at Yale University, author of How Pol Pot Came to Power and The Pol Pot Regime)
