AbstractThe Ogaden, a mostly barren desert in southeast Ethiopia, has long been a source of ethnic and nationalist conflict. Although officially within Ethiopia's territorial borders, the region is largely inhabited by ethnic Somalis, who have demanded, and continue to demand, the removal of Ethiopian authority and reunification with Somalia. Frequent border skirmishes have occasionally erupted into war, most notably the Ogaden War of 1977–78, often considered a major factor in the demise of détente between the United States and the Soviet Union.
