Today, the Oromo, ‘a silenced majority’ in Ethiopia for over a century, is not only submerged politically but also academically neglected in the studies at home. Most of the serious scholars who have been academically engaged to promote Oromo studies were exiled in the 1992 TPLF/EPRDF attempt to destroy Oromo nationalism in its endeavor to monopolize state power. In the last two decades, this group of Oromo Diaspora has made significant contribution in Oromo studies. This book is concerned with societal experience in Ethiopia following the 1974 revolution that had lost its target because of military intervention in Ethiopian politics. It analyzes developments during the military regime, often known as the Darg, among the Macca Oromo of Wallagga (1974-1991). Although it emphasizes only one of the many provinces of what is today Oromia, it clearly exhibited the policy preferred, regarding the Oromo, to be followed by the military regime. The work places its analyses in the context of the wider Ethiopian scene. It is mainly an attempt to contribute to the Oromo study under ‘suppression.'
