520    The migration of Ethiopians across international borders 
       is a recent phenomenon because of the limited integration 
       of the country and society to the global economy. Since it
       was never colonized--aside from the Italian occupation of 
       1936-1941--Ethiopia's economy and society were not 
       directly impacted by the ebb and flow of the global 
       economy, and thus never generated international migration.
       Beginning in the 1970s, due to factors such as famine, 
       rural poverty, civil war, and political repression, an 
       unprecedented number of Ethiopian migrants began to leave 
       their country in search of better, more secure lives. 
       Today, this diaspora constitutes a distinctive community 
       dispersed across the world, but bound by a common feeling 
       of collectiveness and a shared history of the homeland. 
       The contributors to this volume draw their work from a 
       wide variety of interdisciplinary fields and provide new 
       critical insight on Ethiopian migrants and their diaspora 
       communities. What has emerged from these scholarly works 
       is the recognition that the Ethiopian diaspora--although 
       separated by oceans and nations, by politics, ethnicity, 
       class, gender and age--are carving out a social and 
       material world born out of their particular circumstances 
       both 'here' and 'there'. This book was originally 
       published as a special issue of African and Black Diaspora
       : An International Journal.
