    FREE MOBI æ DOC Beneath the Lion's Gaze Hardcover ↠ BERKINGMAD Beneath the Lion's GazeLet’s be real here – a lot of what we Westerners know of Ethiopia is based on those late night aid commercials soliciting support for starving children with distended bellies and flies swarming their faces This is incredibly problematic Maaza Mengiste’s “Beneath The Lion’s Gaze” flies in the face of that monolithic stock image of the country and gives a richly drawn description of Ethiopian life before the 1974 revolution that many people know little or nothing aboutThis is the story of a family set against the overthrow of Emperor Haile Selassie and is easily one of most gripping books I’ve read in a very long time It looks baldly at the beauty of Ethiopian culture a strongly family community and faith centered way of life Ethiopian history Ethiopia proudly off Italian forces and was the only African nation not colonized by Europeans and the political machinations that tore at the fabri
