Summary
Yemen is arguably the most fascinating and least known country in the Arab world. Long regarded by classical geographers as a fabulous land where flying serpents guarded sacred incense groves, our current ideas of this country at the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula have been hijacked -- by images of the desert, by oil, by the Gulf War. But, as Tim Mackintosh-Smith reminds us with this brilliant book, there is another Arabia. Mackintosh-Smith writes with an intimacy and depth of knowledge gained through thirteen years among the Yemenis. Crossing mountain, desert, ocean and three millennia of history, he portrays a land where men chew leaves and camels live on fish; where men wear pinstriped lounge-suit jackets on top, skirts below, and wicked curved daggers in the middle; a city that seems to have been baked, not built, of iced gingerbread. In this book, Yemen is part of Arabia, but it is like no place else on Earth
