Abstract:An international workshop on Lj Iyasu's politics and life took place at Wollo University in Des, Ethiopia, in November 2009. One hundred years ago, from 1910 to 1916 the young prince Lj Iyasu (1897 - 1936) assumed power as the uncrowned emperor of Ethiopia. He was overthrown by an alliance of oligarchs led by the future emperor Hayle Sllas. During the past two decades new sources have come up, which allow asking new questions and look for new answers. This book assembles diverse perspectives on Lj Iyasu's politics and life, his 'pluralistic' and controversial religious inclinations, and his international relations. The editors: loi Ficquet and Wolbert G.C. Smidt. Contributions by: Alessandro Gori, Zuzanna Augustyniak, Estelle Sohier, Valeria Semenova, Ahmed Hassen Omar, Richard Pankhurst, Rudolf Agstner, Hugues Fontaine, Haggai Erlich, Shiferaw Bekele, Aramis Houmed Soul, and Asfa-Wossen Asserate.
