Yemen, a poor and deeply divided country that has been embroiled in revolution and unrest since January 2011 is teetering on the brink of civil war or total collapse. With an active arm of Al Qaeda based in Yemen, how will this rising conflict affect Saudi and American relations in the region? How will an increasingly divided opposition within Yemen move forward?

Join one of the country’s foremost authorities on Yemen, Robert D. Burrowes, as he takes us on a rich and complex tour of the region. Drawing on extensive experience in Yemeni history, culture, and politics, Professor Burrowes delineates how the regime of President Ali Abdullah Saleh has evolved over the past three decades and now faces calls for regime change and possible state failure.
