Abyssinia Avoids the Abyss

A 20th century Ethiopian TL started by Hunam in October 2011. Read it here.


Premise and POD

The POD is Haile Selassie taking on a more reformist mantle post-war instead of focusing increasingly centralizing the power of the state (and thus his own power). This would, of course, weaken his own power base noticeably, but if successful will pretty much neuter the nobility; at least, weaken the uppity Mesafint (hereditary nobles) to the benefit of the Mekwanint (appointed nobles) over whom the Emperor has more sway.
