About the Authors
  • The Saudi Green Book is a reprint of the famous report concerning relations between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Imam Yahya Hamid Uddin, Year 1353 [1934]. This edition makes available the original Arabic text of the so-called 'Saudi Green Book', issued by the Saudi government in April 1934, regarding the relations and conflict between Saudi Arabia and the Yemen. The Arabic text is followed by the translation into English of the Green Book, received in 1936/1937 from the British Legation at Jeddah. The translation would appear to be by Mr A. S. Calvert, charge d'affaires at the Legation. The English text is published in its original hand-written form, as found in the Public Record Office, as well as in transcription. The comments on the Green Book of Sir Andrew Ryan, British Minister at Jeddah, are also published.

    • Historical Overview

      Archive Editions presents a reprint of the famous so-called Saudi Green Book issued by the Saudi Government in April 1934, regarding the relations and conflict between Saudi Arabia and the Yemen. It remains a key document for historical study of relations between Ibn Saud and the Imam Yahya and of tribal and territorial claims in the Tehama and Najran regions. This edition publishes the original Arabic text followed by the English translation prepared at the British Legation at Jeddah in the 1930s.

    • Documentary Importance

      A number of 'Green Books' were issued by the Saudi Government on various territorial issues. The present volume includes the text (found only in English) of two relevant and much briefer Green Books of 1930, regarding the administration of the Asir. In his comments on the Green Book (see section 4 of the present volume), the British Minister at Jeddah drew attention to the special interest of the document, including the following points:
      The text is given of the first treaty of 1338 (1920) between Ibn Saud and the Idrisi, the exact nature of which had long been a subject of speculation, and which was now seen to express ancestral claims and aspirations rather than establish precise frontiers.
      An account is given of the negotiations between Ibn Saud and the Imam Yahya in 1927-1928 and the settlement of the Arwa [given as 'Aru in the English text] question in 1931.
      An account is given of tribal allegiances in the Yam and Najran and the confrontation of the Imam's and Saudi troops in the Wadi Najran.
