Yemen: the Search for a Modern State Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: The Gulf series

Hardback

Description

The development of North Yemen in the twentieth century was one of the most interesting features of the Arabian Peninsula.

After the traumas of the civil war which embroiled Nasser's Egypt, the country emerged from its traditional tribal heritage into the modern world.

Sandwiched between Saudi Arabia and Marxist South Yemen, the country had an awkward and delicate problem in balancing its political affiliations and in resisting external pressure on its internal affairs.

This book, first published in 1982, traces the history of the Yemen from the 1930s and looks at the way in which the traditional political structures were modernised and how the country coped with these strains both internally and externally.
