This book is prepared for multivariate data analysis using R which is a recently most popular Programming Language in an open-source statistical environment. The choice of R for this purpose is influenced by the fact that it is powerful, free and the graphics capability is unparalleled.


The book is a result of rigorous research, testing, successive enrichment and refinement of methods and approaches.  It is designed to be self-contained in dealing with problems ranging from data editing, manipulation and transformation to complex multivariate data Analysis and interpretation.


The comprehensive and flexible treatment of the most important multivariate data analysis approaches and procedures will be of great significance to graduate students and professional researchers in ecological botany and zoology, agriculture, forestry, and environmental management, and to other scientists working with multivariate set of circumstances.

…the book [provides] examples from Ethiopian everyday practices, thoughts and sayings…. Of particular note are the…exercises to help learners contemplate on and grasp…psychological concepts at ease. The other strength of the book is the availability of answers and glossary sections to help learners track their progress as they deal with the respective chapters. The author has further demonstrated a writing style that is simple, clear and within the grasp of an average reader. I…feel that the book is an important contribution….

        When he was a student at the former University College of Addis Ababa, Mulugeta Eteffa got scholarship to study in the United States where he had to face racism. “The Bitter Honey” is a vivid and honest account of discrimination and intimidation faced by black people in restaurants, bars, barber shops and elsewhere. What the author expressed in the book is not only informative, but also educational in the sense that any reasonable person of good will has to take risks for good causes and fight injustice whenever and wherever it takes place. The author’s favorite slogan is “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”.  Americans have come a long way in electing a black president which most of us thought will not happen during our lifetime. For a country that had official color discrimination in the South as late as mid 1960s, this is a great achievement.

       The reader of this book will be enriched by the relentless, exciting uncompromising and principled struggles undertaken by the author in an attempt to bring about racial equality and social justice. The challenges that Ambassador Dr. Mulugeta Eteffa faced in the 1960s still exist in different forms, not only in the United States, but also elsewhere. Therefore, the relevance of the content of the book is global and “The Bitter Honey” a fascinating and enjoyable reading.

An introduction

Solomon Yirga

Addis Ababa University


“Although most federal countries have sub-national constitutions (i.e., constitutions of the constituent units), these constitutions have not been given sufficient attention by legal scholars. Yet, a full picture of the constitutional architecture of a federation with sub-national constitutions requires the inclusion of the sub-national constitutions as well. To what extent the sub-national constitutions add to the constitutional architecture included in the federal constitution depends on the ‘constitutional space’ reserved to the federal constituent units by the federal constitution.

The observation that sub-national constitutions are low-visibility constitutions is even more true in Ethiopia. This observation constitutes the background to the present book.

This book compares and analyzes all nine regional constitutions in Ethiopia and assesses to what extent their drafters have made use of the sub-national constitutional space reserved to them by the federal constitution.”

About the author: Christophe Van der Beken (PhD, Ghent University 2006) is an Associate Professor at the Ethiopian Civil Service University and an Associated Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Ghent University Law Faculty. His research activities are focused on comparative constitutional law and federalism with a special interest in Africa.

Ethiopia has rich tradition in educating its youth, asserts the conventional wisdom yet there is also a strong complaint that those roots are ignored. This publication does not follow up this debate but presents studies on the traditional Ethiopian education with the hope that students in education studies would appreciate what our tradition can offer or does not offer in the way of socializing and integrating the youth into the society. These studies are: ባህልና ዕድገት discussing the influence of tradition; “The Education of Adwa Fighters” reflecting incidental military education; studies on formal religious education of Orthodox Church and Muslim communities namely የቤተ ክህነት የቀለም ትምህርት and የቤተመስጊድ ትምህርትና ሥርዓቱ with the case studies ጥንታዊ ትምህርት ዘአዲስ ዓለም በደብረጽዮን and the Traditional Language Teaching: the Case of Quran Schools, Education magic in traditional Ethiopia, “the reflections on ተግባረ ጥበብና ቀለም ትምህርት፤ የቀለም ትምህርት መሪ ሀሳቦች and ባህላዊ የቤተክህነት ትምህርት ከየት ወዴት? Social Studies in Ethiopia are presented as a contrast to socialization based on religious and patriarchal profession association and its role in changing the traditional polity.

Most of the studies are conducted while this writer was teaching the course social foundation of Ethiopian education at the faculty of education Addis Ababa University.
