    Book synopsis: The papers brought together in this volume represent a selection from my writings, and span a period of thirty years (1967-97). There was, however, a significant break in this long period, during which I wrote virtually nothing. These were the years I spent as an involuntary guest of the Mengistu regime, first one year (1974-75), and then six (1976-83), making a total of seven. During the first stint, books were not allowed, and there was thus no intellectual activity to speak of. During the second, much longer period, although I did no writing, I read a considerable amount. In fact, it represents the most intensive as well as extensive period of my reading. The break between the two years was one of personal turmoil, and did not lend itself to much writing.
