Product Description:

The staggering breadth and diversity of Yemen's landscapes and peoples is not something easily conveyed. Here, in this remarkable celebration of his homeland, Mahmoud Al-Shaibani presents a breathtaking panorama that sweeps in the mountains and valleys, the plains and seas, and the myriad of different communities that live in this ancient land.

His is a remarkable achievement, the fruit of tireless years traversing the country back and forth like no other. We are fortunate to be able to have this window into this rare corner of Arabia—a land of stark geographical contrasts inhabited by a people whose way of life has often scarcely changed since the dawn of settled civilization.

Mahmoud Al-Shaibani has twenty-six years of experience in the tourism field and is the general manager of Universal Touring Company. He has crisscrossed the country countless times over the years and here presents his remarkable collection for the first time.

Victor Henderson, CMG, served as British Ambassador in Yemen from 1997 to 2001.

Product Description:

Yemen Proud is an introduction to the rich history of Yemen and its strong relationship with Britain—from the Yemeni sailors who immigrated to Britain in the nineteenth century to the British Crown colony in Aden, right up to the integration of Yemeni communities into British society today.

The Yemeni community has been a part of British society since the 1890s and was one of the first Muslim communities to settle in Britain. British Yemenis fought for Britain in both world wars and have made countless contributions to British society. This book is a celebration of their achievements.
