"This highly original book offers fresh insight into how traditional ideas of person, society, and responsibility, reworked in the cauldron of revolution and rapidly changing economic and political conditions, remain central to understanding contemporary society and identity politics. Always clear and accessible, Vom Bruck integrates the perspectives of women and men, seamlessly showing how Yemenis of different generations and positions in society struggle to interpret what happened to the Yemen-and to themselves-in the past. This riveting account offers vital keys to understanding contemporary social, religious, and political trends in the Yemen and elsewhere." - Dale Eickelman, Dartmouth College
