Review:


‘Essential reading for anyone who wants to know where the future of Yemen lies after the toppling of Ali Abdalla Saleh. The authors shed light on the context of the Yemeni uprising in a way that not only helps us understand the current transitional period but also the outlines of Yemen’s future.’

Charles Schmitz, President of the American Institute of Yemeni Studies and Associate Professor at Towson University. Maryland.

‘An up to date and wide-ranging guide to what is arguably the Arab world’s least known and most misunderstood state. Edited by one of Britain’s foremost authorities on Yemen, ‘Why Yemen Matters’ brings together an impressive range of experts on the country to examine the contemporary reality of Yemen with all its contradictions and complexities. It will be of use and interest to academics, policy-makers, students and those simply interested in finding out more about Yemen. Politics, economics, culture, society and foreign relations are all addressed in a volume that emphatically explains why Yemen does indeed matter.’

Michael Willis, Director of the Middle East Centre, St Antony’s College, Oxford University

Book Description SAQI BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In November 2011, an agreement brokered by the GCC brought an end to Yemen s tumultuous uprising. The National Dialogue Conference has opened a window of opportunity for change, bringing Yemen s main political forces together with groups that were politically marginalized. Yet, the risk of collapse is serious, and if Yemen is to remain a viable state, it must address numerous political, social and economic challenges. In this invaluable volume, experts with extensive Yemen experience provide innovative analysis of the country s major crises: centralized governance, the role of the military, ethnic conflict, separatism, Islamism, foreign intervention, water scarcity and economic development. Published in association with the London Middle East Institute at SOAS, and the British Yemeni Society. Seller Inventory # AAJ9780863567773
