This book undertakes a systematic analysis of responsibilities for the 1983-86 Ethiopian famine and its relief, drawing upon a wide range of materials and personal observation in Ethiopia itself. Ethiopia's sponsorship of famine is described by tracing its origins to revolutionary food policies, reinforced by the restructuring of external relations and development strategies away from the West and toward the communist world.

The policy sources of the famine are described in detail, assessing expectations about regional variations in Ethiopian food policy and the inducement of famine. Military struggles and economic stagnation associated with collectivization efforts are considered to have produced consumption shortages in war zones and stable regions alike. In this context of Ethiopian disavowal and American hesitancy, a broad relief policy was fashioned.

This book describes in rich intimacy conflicts between donor and recipient governments - a conflict about the uses of aid for either famine relief as such or the pursuit of radical national transformation. Unique in its dual focus on policy from a donor nation and recipient nation alike, Varnis's work offers the specialist in African affairs, international relations, and policy analysis a keen sense of how policies are made and changed over time to meet circumstances of a highly volatile and unique sort.

Vamis's work is rich in theoretical implications for social development, for this was more than a conventional relief effort. It was an effort that failed to advance specifically Western interests, and served to stabilize the socialist orientation and dictatorial control of the Ethiopian State. Just what this means in terms of ideological priorities and the dependency paradigm forms the basis of the assessment of the conclusion "of Reluctant Aid."

Could the story of mankind be far older than we have previously believed? Using tools as varied as archaeo-astronomy, geology, and computer analysis of ancient myths, Graham Hancock presents a compelling case to suggest that it is.
 
“A fancy piece of historical sleuthing . . . intriguing and entertaining and sturdy enough to give a long pause for thought.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
In Fingerprints of the Gods, Hancock embarks on a worldwide quest to put together all the pieces of the vast and fascinating jigsaw of mankind’s hidden past. In ancient monuments as far apart as Egypt’s Great Sphinx, the strange Andean ruins of Tihuanaco, and Mexico’s awe-inspiring Temples of the Sun and Moon, he reveals not only the clear fingerprints of an as-yet-unidentified civilization of remote antiquity, but also startling evidence of its vast sophistication, technological advancement, and evolved scientific knowledge.
 
A record-breaking number one bestseller in Britain, Fingerprints of the Gods contains the makings of an intellectual revolution, a dramatic and irreversible change in the way that we understand our past—and so our future.
 
And Fingerprints of God tells us something more. As we recover the truth about prehistory, and discover the real meaning of ancient myths and monuments, it becomes apparent that a warning has been handed down to us, a warning of terrible cataclysm that afflicts the Earth in great cycles at irregular intervals of time—a cataclysm that may be about to recur.
 
“Readers will hugely enjoy their quest in these pages of inspired storytelling.”—The Times (UK)
