Chapter Summary

This bibliography of the book Conquest and Resistance in the Ethiopian Empire, 1880-1974 presents a list of reference books and articles relevant to the study of the Case of the Arsi Oromo. The Oromo social system or culture is found on three closely interrelated institutions namely Gosa, Gadaa and Qaalluu. Traditional Oromo society was a warrior society par excellence as war was also highly valued among their Semitic and Cushitic neighbors. Among the Oromo society, warfare was more institutionalized both in the Gadaa system and Gosa ideology.
