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 book is augmented by illustrations, maps and a detailed chronology.


1. Turkey, Britain, and Imam Yahya: the years around 1900; 2. Yahya and the British: 1918–1948; 3. A new form of politics: the 1950s; 4. Revolutions and civil wars: the 1960s; 5. Two Yemeni states in the 1970s; 6. Yemen in a wider world: politics and economics through the 1980s; 7. United Yemen.
