About the Author

Laurent Bonnefoy is a CNRS researcher at CERI Sciences Po, Paris. A specialist in Islamist movements and politics in the Arabian Peninsula, he is the author of Salafism in Yemen: Transnationalism and Religious Identity, and has published in numerous international academic journals.


"This is an outstanding book, an incisive and in-depth look at Yemeni international interactions over the past two centuries. Bonnefoy's examination of migrants, merchants, and refugees, and literature, song, and poetry takes the reader on a far richer and highly compelling journey than others have done.' -- Kristian Coates Ulrichsen, Fellow for the Middle East, Rice University Baker Institute for Public Policy, and Associate Fellow in the Middle East & North Africa Program, Chatham House

"Bonnefoy deftly weaves together historical and contemporary analysis through the lens of transnational flows of ideas, people, and claims. This is essential to a better understanding of what is (and is not) new about Yemen's axes of conflict and potential for sustainable peace."-- Stacey Philbrick Yadav, Chair of the International Relations Program, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, and author of Islamists and the State: Legitimacy and Institutions in Yemen and Lebanon

"A splendid documentation of Yemen's synergies with the world, both in history and contemporary times. Bonnefoy has done a superb job of persuading us of Yemen's vital position in the global community."--Marieke Brandt, Austrian Academy of Sciences Institute for Social Anthropology, and author of Tribes and Politics in Yemen

"Athoroughly researched and compelling analysis that makes a solid contribution to Yemen studies by providing an insightful look at Yemeni international interactions over the past two centuries."--Bustan: The Middle East Book Review

"An intensely detailed examination of this ancient land on the southern tip of the Arabian peninsula. [The] current civil conflict can be better understood by a reading of Yemen and the World, perhaps more so than any other published account."
