A manual for dismantling dictatorship in Ethiopia available in Amharic
The New York Times had a lead story about a U.S. Intellectual whose book is credited in launching people power movements including those in Tunisia and Egypt. His name is Gene Sharp and he is an 83 year old American intellectual who lives in brick row house in a working-class neighborhood in Boston. His book “From Dictatorship to Democracy,” a 93-page guide to toppling autocrats, is available for download in 24 languages including in Ethiopia's official and most widely spoken language of Amharic.
Thanks to the contribution of volunteers, his work has been translated in to Amharic and Tigrigna. The guide is available for free to download and it is in the public domain and may be reproduced without permission from Gene Sharp. Citation of the source, and notification to the Albert Einstein Institution for the reproduction, translation, and reprinting of this publication, are appreciated.
His writings advocate for a non-violent struggle against tyranny. The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt had his book posted on its website, says the New York Times. His website has 198 Methods of Nonviolent Action.
