Medieval History with Africa at the Center, Europe at the Margins:

A new history of late medieval Ethiopia and its interactions with Europe by historian Verena Krebs does something a little unusual, at least for a professor at a European university: it treats the horn of Africa as the center of civilization that it was, and Europeans as the members of far-flung satellite states that Ethiopians could not help but see them as being.

I don’t see an actual link to the work here, I’ll have to revisit… But the concept looks like an awesome work.
