A History of Modern Yemen
Cambridge University Press, Dec 7, 2000 - History - 285 pages
Yemen's modern history is unique and deserves to be better understood. While the borders of most Middle East states were defined by colonial powers after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, a single Yemeni state was not formed until 1990. In fact, much of Yemen's twentieth-century history was taken up constructing such a state, forged after years of civil war. The story is fast-moving and accessible, augmented by illustrations, maps and a detailed chronology. This book is for anyone interested in discovering more about a little-known slice of Arab history.
