Riassunto: This book features Skinner’s 1903-04 mission to Ethiopia which resulted in the signing of a treaty between the United States and Ethiopia to regulate commercial relations and the 1906 Abyssinia To-Day book. The year 1903 marks, therefore, the beginning of official contact between Ethiopia and the United States. 2003 commemorates the 100th anniversary of this bold initiative, launching an important relationship that continues to the present day. This marked one of the earliest official engagements by the United States to the interior of sub-Saharan Africa. European countries had colonized most of Africa by the early 20th century, which was not a significant factor in U.S. foreign policy. Ethiopia was one of the rare parts of the continent that did not experience colonization.
L'autore: Robert P. Skinner, the first official American representative to Ethiopia in 1903, negotiated a treaty regulating commercial relations between Ethiopia and the United States.

Skinner died in Belfast in 1960.
