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:
Combining outstanding photographic skills with assiduous research, this book takes the reader on a fascinating journey through Yemen

"Absolutely gorgeous" --Sandi Toksvig, BBC Radio 4

The sophisticated traveler is fast awakening to the glories and treasures of Yemen, the land of the half-mythic Queen of Sheba and the "Arabia Felix" coveted by ancient Rome. Yet the "glories and treasures" of Yemen are as much contemporary as they are ancient and historic--in the spectacular architecture of its cities, which until lately have remained beyond the ken of the outside world, the dramatic landscape of highland and coastal Yemen, and in the panoply of its people.

Yemen: Jewel of Arabia's thorough coverage will prove indispensable to the visitor. This book, long in the making, is now the only photographic work generally available to the English-speaking visitor or armchair traveler.

Product Description:

In 1869, Hayyim Habshush, a Yemeni Jew, accompanied the European orientalist Joseph Halévy on his archaeological tour of Yemen. Twenty years later, Habshush wrote A Vision of Yemen, a memoir of their travels, that provides a vivid account of daily life, religion, and politics. More than a simple travelogue, it is a work of trickster-tales, thick anthropological descriptions, and reflections on Jewish–Muslim relations. At its heart lies the fractious and intimate relationship between the Yemeni coppersmith and the "enlightened" European scholar and the collision between the cultures each represents. The book thus offers a powerful indigenous response to European Orientalism.

This edition is the first English translation of Habshush's writings from the original Judeo-Arabic and Hebrew and includes an accessible historical introduction to the work. The translation maintains Habshush's gripping style and rich portrayal of the diverse communities and cultures of Yemen, offering a potent mixture of artful storytelling and cultural criticism, suffused with humor and empathy. Habshush writes about the daily lives of men and women, rich and poor, Jewish and Muslim, during a turbulent period of war and both Ottoman and European imperialist encroachment. With this translation, Alan Verskin recovers the lost voice of a man passionately committed to his land and people.

Product Description:

Oman is a stark and wild mountainous country. This map shows its physical features and road network exceptionally well.

Yemen is one of the most unusual countries in the world, but well worth a visit if you can get in. This map certainly shows the country to good advantage, especially its exotic terrain. Politically, this is a country one would have to define as challenging; touristically, as well. However, as a map, this one is exceptional.
