Peter Lewisis the translator of such works as Roger Willemsen s"The Ends of the Earth" and Jonas Luscher s "Barbarian Spring."


"A thorough and in-depth view of this larger-than-life figure. . . . Intertwines history, geography, politics, religion, and human interest to form a fascinating narration that covers much of the landscape of the twentieth century."
--Foreword Reviews
"Haile Selassie is one of the most bizarre and misunderstood figures in 20th-century history, alternately worshipped and mocked, idolised and marginalised. This magnificent biography by the German-Ethiopian historian Asfa-Wossen Asserate (a distant relation of Selassie), and translated by Peter Lewis, is diligently researched and fair-minded; he is at last accorded a proper dignity."
"This moving and commanding work of literature, a perspective from inside the subject's world and yet with full recognition of the world which surrounded it, is a litany of lessons, and a signal reminder of the human components of leadership."
--Defense & Foreign Affairs Special Analysis
"A multifaceted picture of the so-called Father of Africa."
--Publishers Weekly
"A tautly written, remarkably even-handed account of successful autocracy."
"Provides an authoritative, insider's perspective and a refreshingly balanced look at this fascinating international figure who was the global face of Ethiopia for most of the 20th century. . . . King of Kings: Triumph and Tragedy of Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia is full of captivating details that only an insider could share; it is written with great poise and warmth for the enigmatic leader while at the same time cognizant of the swelling unhappiness and criticism the Emperor faced from his own people impatient with the pace of change."
--Tadias Magazine
