Damluji Salma Samar. "The Architecture of Yemen: From Yafi to Hadramut", 2007, 304 pages
Until the early 1990s the southern and eastern towns of Yemen were extremely difficult to access. The result of nearly two decades of research, this is the first book to offer an in-depth investigation into the characteristic architecture of the region. The authors first hand research provides detailed insights into building techniques and methods, though still practised, are little known outside the area.
Refreshingly, the book moves out of the more familiar major cities into the hinterlands and explores regions that could be said to be the last strongholds of traditional Arab architecture. The author was allowed to visit locations and sites that had previously been closed to architectural historians. As a result of this privileged access, the text and images combine to convey unique insights and viewpoints: those of the master builders and house owners who actually create and inhabit the buildings.

P.S. Много фотографий, схем. Есть словарь архитектурных терминов с указанием региона, где они используются. Авторские права этой книжки перекрывают любую утечку информации :))) Книга шикарна.

Paul Dresch "A History of Modern Yemen" Cambridge University Press, 2000, 304 p.
To the outside world, Yemen is famous for its beautiful landscapes and architecture. However, as Paul Dresch demonstrates, Yemens modern history is unique and deserves to be better understood. While the borders of most Middle East states were defined by colonial powers after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, a single Yemeni state was not formed until 1990. In fact, much of Yemens twentieth-century history was taken up constructing such a state, forged after years of civil war between the North and the South. The story is a complex one, but the author handles it masterfully, employing his skills as an anthropologist to re-enact the experiences of those involved through personal encounters and a first-hand knowledge of the region. The narrative is fast-moving and interactive, introducing the non-expert painlessly and pleasurably to a little-known slice of Arab history. Conversely, the expert will find much that is new on every page.
P.S. Вступление, оглавление, списки иллюстраций, карт, графиков и т.д.

Carolyn Han (Retold by), Kamal Ali Al-Hegri (Translator)"From the Land of Sheba: Yemeni Folk Tales" Interlink Books, 2005, 104 p.

P.S.Милые сказки, похожие на адаптированные тексты.

Eric Hansen "Motoring With Mohammed: Journeys to Yemen and the Red Sea" Houghton Mifflin, 1991, 240 p.
Ten years after being shipwrecked on a remote island off Yemen, Eric Hansen returned to search for the journals he had hastily buried during his rescue by a boat-load of smugglers blown off course. It was an unlikely mission, in an unlikely country, compounded by the island's being in a military zone. For, as Hansen discovered, Yemen is caught somewhere between the Middle Ages and our own technocratic times. It is a nation whose capital, San'a, is a collection of Babel-like medieval towers; a tribal society where arguments are settled by gun-fire, and where the majority of the male population spend their lives in a daze, chewing hallucinogenic qat-leaves. It is a country that harbours hostages, missionaries, expatriates, refugees - and Mohammed, the guide who turns Hansen's first attempt to rescue his notebooks into a sheep-buying expedition. This is Hansen's account of the mission.

Daniel McLaughlin "Yemen. Travel guide" Bradt Travel Guides Ltd, 2007, 248 p.+25 maps
Yemen is shrugging off its image of being a country with a security issue, to reveal its stunning landscape and fascinating culture – justifiably worth visiting by professional archaeologists, historians, the business traveller, or those making the most of Yemen's adventure sports such as hiking and scuba-diving. All will gain thrills treading on ground which is the site of the Sabaean dynasty – the era of the fabled Queen of Sheba. Yemen is undoubtedly the choice of those interested in digging deeper into regional culture.

Trevor H.J. Marchand "Minaret Building and Apprenticeship in Yemen" 2001
This book focuses on a team of traditional builders specialized in the construction of towering mosque minarets in Sana'a with whom the author worked as a building laborer in order to learn about learning in a context in which formal technical training, engineers, and drawn plans are nonexistent. Through a combination of rich architectural and ethnographic description, this study of apprenticeship and human spatial cognition provides a fascinating insight into the daily lives and activities of a professional class of craftsmen, and investigates the unique teaching-learning processes that distinguish their trade and mould both their professional and social characters.

Exhibition:Treasures from ancient Yemen

Kevin Rushby "Eating the Flowers of Paradise. A journey through the drug fields of Ethiopia and Yemen/" Flamingo, 1999, 336 pages+6pics
Drawn back to the Yemen by idyllic memories of age-old cities, spectacular mountains and, most of all, the dreamy afternoons spent chewing the stimulant leaf of the qat tree, Kevin Rushby set out to travel the old trade route from the highlands of Ethiopia to Yemen. The journey is at times dangerous, often comic; and by accepting the invitation to take qat at every opportunity, he encounters a wonderful array of characters - criminals, Islamic scholars, an exorcist, and the mysterious Cedric, the travelling companion from hell who offers to help Rushby find a dhow across the Red Sea.

Sarah Searight "Yemen. Land and People.(Photography by Jane Tayloe.Foreword by Tim Mackintosh-Smith)" Al-Uzza books, 2007 (revised edition), 128 pages
[...] 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 Hadhramawt. Superbly illustrared by Jane Taylor's phhotographs, with a foreword by Tim Mackintosh-Smith and an essay on the Indian Ocean island of Soqotra by anthropologist Miranda Morris, this book will surely inspire its readers to visit Yemen for themselves.

Sheikh Hassan Al Thani is a tireless explorer of the history of southern Arabia. A curious observer who is well acquainted with his subject, he photographs the footprints of this civilization, while pondering the country's future. This work takes the reader progressively deeper into the heart of Yemen to see fascinating landscapes, streets, architecture of ancient towns, cars, satellite dishes, and other signs of modernity.
