Middle East Research and Information Project: Critical Coverage of the Middle East Since 1971

Arabia Incognita

Dispatches from Yemen and the Gulf

Sheila Carapico

Just World Books (2016)

Arabia Incognita explores the background to the US-supported, Saudi-led military intervention in Yemen by tracing dynamics in the Arabian Peninsula from the 1960s through to the present. Reporting in the moment and often on the ground, the book’s contributors focus on socio-political struggles in Yemen and parallel disharmonies in the neighboring Gulf petro-kingdoms, placing them in the context of wider Middle Eastern politics and the American role in the region. The dispatches in this anthology were originally published by Middle East Report. They have been curated by renowned Yemen expert Sheila Carapico, who has also included engaging new commentary and graphic materials.

Arabia Incognita is a collaboration between MERIP and Just World Books.
