Summary "Eritrea lies along the coast of the Red Sea in northeastern Africa. Its people are resilient and determined. When the border war between Eritrea and Ethiopia ended in 2018, hope surged for a better future for the country. The country still has significant obstacles to overcome, including religious persecution and strict censorship, but Eritreans will keep fighting for a brighter tomorrow. This installment explores these aspects, as well as other key elements such as geography, government, religion, and art, through detailed photographs, maps, and sidebars, giving a comprehensive view of this distinct African nation"-- Provided by publisher.
