The author covers the history of relations between Ethiopia and the United States, he describes quite clearly the nature of the relationship between Ethiopia and United States foreign policy establishments and how this relationship has evolved over time. He examines in-depth the United States contributions under Haile Selassie. He also goes to some length to detail the United States involvement in the secession of Eritrea from Ethiopia and how instrumental the United States was in the achievement of this objective.

The author looks at the importance of Ethiopia both as a bulwark against international terrorism in Africa and the Arabization of the Red Sea. It is also important in ensuring the stabilization and development of the entire Horn of Africa region.

By the end of the book you should have gained an indepth understanding of the nature of relations between Ethiopia and the United States. I would recommed this book to anyone who is looking to gain substantive knowlegde of U.S.-Ethiopian relations and U.S. relations with the Horn of Africa region.
