An official publication of the Fascist regime justifying Italy's claims to Abyssinia (Ethiopia) on the eve of the conquest: a congeries of backward, poorly governed feudal entities, Abyssinia is seen as presenting grave danger to the Italian colonies of Eritrea and Somalia. The publication describes in some detail the battle of Adua.
