Abstract

This article analyzes the symbolic manifestations of power by Ethiopian political elites at the national level. It explains what power symbols they associate themselves with and what meanings these symbols have. More particularly, it analyzes whether these power symbols have changed over time, and if so what explains the change(s). These questions are answered by comparing the last three Ethiopian regimes. The article relies on secondary sources and on the author’s personal observations.
