Conflict Resolution in the Arab World: Selected Essays

​​This volume presents the study of conflict and conflict management in the Middle East through a variety of case studies. This is a collection of twenty papers prepared for a 1993 conference entitled “Conflict Resolution in the Arab World: Theory and Practice," organized by AUB and held in Larnaca, Cyprus. The essays cover the general subjects of conflict resolution in Islam, the sociological roots of conflict resolution in the Arab world, and conflict resolution and the Arab State. They include several case studies focusing on Sudan, Somalia, Kuwait, Lebanon, and the Palestinians. Two introductory chapters deal, respectively, with western perspectives on conflict resolution and a critique of those perspectives from a non-western viewpoint. Some of the many traditional mechanisms of conflict resolution are discussed, along with how they are being undermined by the profundity and rapidity of social change in the region.​

The Free Yemeni Movement, 1935–1962

With the revolution of 1962 came the end of the thousand-year-old imamate in Yemen. The preceding thirty years had witnessed a multiplicity of attempts to bring about reforms in the kingdom. Personal interviews as well as British records, media reports, and other accounts by Middle East specialists are skillfully integrated here to give a comprehensive picture of the time. The often conflicting monarchical, colonial, and Arab nationalist interests in Yemen provide the context for the author's chronology and analysis of the three decades of Free Yemeni activities that paved the way for the Republican Revolution.
