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
