Yemen is in the grip of its most severe crisis in years. Fuelled
by Arab and Western intervention, the civil war has quickly
escalated, resulting in thousands killed and millions close to
starvation. Suffering from a collapsed economy, the people
of Yemen face a desperate choice between the Huthi rebels
allied with ex-President Saleh on the one side and the
internationally recognised government propped up by the
Saudi-led coalition and Western arms on the other.

In this invaluable analysis, Helen Lackner uncovers the roots
of the social and political conflicts that threaten the very
survival of the state and its people. She reveals the corruption
of the country’s US-backed autocratic regime, as well as its
failure to address national impoverishment and to plan an
equitable economy for Yemen’s growing population.

‘Lackner combines elegant writing with incisive and lucid
analysis … This is an indispensable guide to understanding
Yemen’s profound and tragic problems.’ Noel Brehony
CMG, former Chairman of the British Yemeni Society
