The Acta Aethiopica is a series in which the original Ethiopian documents of the 19th century are published in fascimile with English translation and annotations, as well as indices. In a field where scholarship has most oftenly depended on the reports and letters of Europeans, it is essential that the voice of the Ethiopians is heard. Volume four presents the original documents of the period 1880-1884. The work was left unfinished when Sven Rubenson passed away and has been finalized by me in collaboration with Professor Shiferaw Bekele.
