The encyclopaedia for the Horn of Africa treats all important terms of the history of ideas of this central region between Orient and Africa. After its completion the set will comprise five volumes - four text and one index volume with altogether more than 4000 articles. The topics range from basic data over archaeology, ethnology and anthropology, history, the languages and literatures up to the art, religion and culture. This second volume combines about 1170 articles in English language, written by approximately 250 authors with extents varying from a few lines to several pages. Approximately 250 maps and about the same number of illustrations round off this unique reference book.

Hetem Eliesie in der Orientalistischen Literaturzeitung 102 (2007) 4-5:
Es ist wahrhaftig ein bewunderungswürdiges Zeugnis internationaler Zusammenarbeit. Die baldige Publikation des dritten Bandes der Encyclopaedia Aethiopica ist demgemäß mit großer Spannung zu erwarten.
