H-Horn aims to facilitate scholarly collaboration and exchanges between professionals interested in the history and culture of the Horn of Africa and the Red Sea region. One of the primary objectives of H-Horn is to reach beyond national, sub-national, religious and ethnic lines and offer all scholars of the Horn a forum in which to address major issues and controversies that have defined, and continue to define, the history of the Horn of Africa, particularly in recent decades.

Hi Jonathan,
As far as I know there is not. I have an original copy of Westlichen Somal und der Nordostlische Galla Stamme. It is falling apart. I've translated the parts most relevant to me. His books are truly incredible and it would be wonderful if someone could find a grant to digitize (and translate) these important works. I spoke with the ethnographic museum in Vienna where he deposited most of his collection and there was some interest but this was in 2004.
