Description
A country long regarded by classical geographers as a fabulous land where flying serpents guarded sacred incense groves, while medieval Arab visitors told tales of disappearing islands and menstruating mountains. Our current ideas of this country at the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula have been hijacked by images of the terrorist strongholds, drone attacks, and diplomatic tensions. But, as Mackintosh-Smith reminds us in this newly updated book, there is another Arabia. Yemen may be a part of Arabia, but it is like no place on earth.

Located at the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula, it has been long regarded by classical geographers as a fabulous land where flying serpents guard sacred incense groves. But our current ideas of Yemen have been hijacked by images of terrorist strongholds, drone attacks, and diplomatic tensions. After living thirteen years among the Yemenis, Tim Mackintosh-Smith reminds us there is another Arabia.
