History, Power, Ideology: Central Issues in Marxism and Anthropology

Donald Donham


Is Marxism a reflection of the conceptual system it fights against, rather than a truly comprehensive approach to human history? Drawing on recent work in anthropology, history, and philosophy, this book confronts this problem in analyzing a radically different social order: the former Maale kingdom of southern Ethiopia.

Keywords: Maale, Ethiopia, history, power, ideology, Marxism, anthropology, social order, philosophy
