RED WOLVES OF YEMEN: The Struggle for Independence
Vitaly Naumkin

Professor Fred Halliday, author of Arabia without Sultans, has written that 'no-one is better qualified to address the study of Yemen's fight for independence than Vitaly Naumkin, a Russian specialist long resident in South Yemen and personally acquainted with many of its key actors. His account of South Yemeni politics in the 1960s draws extensively on interviews and Arabic sources, and sets its analysis in its social and regional context.'
