The ethnography of the Sidaama people of southern Ethiopia by A. E. Jensen, Elisabeth Pauli and Helmut Straube goes back to their research expedition to Sidaama in 1954/55. Following their research trip, they drafted the present work, which they did not publish. It is a classic ethnography divided into the following chapters: Land and people, social life, religious life, course of life, and oral traditions. The ethnography is illustrated by photographs from the archives of the Frobenius Institute.

Adolf Ellegard Jensen (1899 – 1965) was director of the Anthropological Museum in Frankfurt and hold a full professorship at the Institute for Social Anthropology at Goethe University Frankfurt and the directorship of the Frobenius Institute (1946 – 65).
