    • Emanuela Trevisan Semi's book is an insightful biographical study of a key figure among Ethiopian Jews of the early 20th Century.Taamrat Emmanuel was profoundly fascinated by European Jewish culture, by Western thought, and by Italy's language and customs. ...His free spirit, his independence and critical thinking, his suspicion of power, his sarcasm, and his irony flowered and were nurtured during his years in Italy as a young man. “... I was against the occupation. Because I was against the dictatorship. ‘Against the dictatorship?' Yes and yes! And it's your fault—or your merit. I was young when I went to Italy where they taught me about democracy and made me detest Caesar and Napoleon. I am a reader and admirer of your Mazzini . . .” [Publisher's text]
