"Yemen: Dancing on the Heads of Snakes." By Victoria Clark.

So I've recently read the book, which gives Dresch's "A History of Modern Yemen" a run for it's money (albeit Dresch is more scholarly, and his writing more dense). I would recommend the book to anyone with a passing interest in Yemen, as its less than 300 pages addresses the main concerns in Yemen today, as well as gives a good background by providing the last 400 years of history (granted, a thumbnail sketch). For a review by the Economist, click here.
