Yemen: Land and People by Sarah Searight highlights in words and pictures the culture and history of this remarkable country.

Known to the Romans as 'Arabia Felix' for its fertility, it lies in the path of the monsoon rains that water its highlands as well as on the trade routes between the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean. Both account for the rich variety of people and customs. ‘Fair in its water and its air’, wrote an earlier traveller.

The book takes the reader on a geographical and historical tour through the ancient kingdoms that fringe the desert, illuminates the medieval world of the central and southern highlands, and explores the links with the wider world developed from Aden and the Hadhramaut.

Superbly illustrated by Jane Taylor’s photographs, with a foreword by Tim Mackintosh-Smith and essay on the Indian Ocean island of Soqotra by anthropologist Miranda Morris.
