The Encyclopaedia focuses on the cultural region consisting
of Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti as well as parts of the
Sudan and Somalia. It additionally covers the relationships
of the core zone with other regions, including Oriental and
Occidental countries. The central thematic areas are history,
languages, literatures, ethnology, religion, culture, society
and arts. While most of the articles gear towards
history, many also cover recent political and economical developments.
Biographic entries provide information on personalities
who played an important role in cultural or social
life, or who have contributed greatly to our knowledge of the
region. 275 authors from 40 countries have merged their
efforts to present known and innovative research results in
over 1050 articles; illustrations and maps offer additional information.
The use is facilitated by cross references as well
as comprehensive bibliographic references.
