Yemen is a country that is critical to U.S. security and our political interests, yet most Americans know virtually nothing about it. This book unlocks its secrets and explains its complexities in simple yet compelling language.


* Supplies a deep examination of a country that most policy experts only possess a superficial knowledge of

* Provides insights into why tribes have been crucial throughout Yemen's history and even to the modern day

* Reveals why characterizations of Yemen as "a weak state," "lawless," or "lacking a rule of law" are inaccurate and simplistic

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A great reference for those with more than a tourist interest in Yemen or for undergraduate-level students looking for a general overview on the country." - Booklist
"Part of the Middle East in Focus series of country studies, this volume on Yemen fills a gap. That it represents the third Middle Eastern country addressed in the series (and is within the first dozen countries of the worldwide series) shows that the editors understand the importance of this often-overlooked nation. . . . The volume is well illustrated with numerous photographs and several well-chosen maps." - Choice
"An admirably nuanced narrative for Middle East reference collections." - Library Journal
"The third volume in the ABC-CLIO Middle East in Focus (the first two on Saudi Arabia and Egypt) maintains the excellence of quality expected from this prestigious publisher and series. . . . Although it is a reference work, it is not hard to become captivated by the book and read it from cover to cover. . . . Outstanding." - ARBA
