Summary
  • Offering an introduction to clanism and tribalism in the Gulf of Aden area, Dr Lewis uses these concepts to analyse security in Yemen, Somalia, Somaliland and the broader region. This historical overview of conflict in each country, and the resulting threats of piracy and terrorism, will benefit both the casual reader and student of development.
  • "Alexandra Lewis provides a detailed yet succinct examination of the foundations of state and non-state governance structures across Yemen and the various parts of Somalia. The treatment of tribal dynamics and their relation to formal states is particularly insightful and will prove useful to those pursuing peace, economic growth and stable governance in southern Arabia and the Horn of Africa. I commend this book to scholars as well as practitioners in the international community and the military." - Steven A. Zyck, Research Fellow, Humanitarian Policy Group at Overseas Development Institute

Summary expansion
Both economically and strategically, the Gulf of Aden is globally one of the most important waterways. However, it is hemmed in on either side by two of the most unstable and dangerous territories in the world - Yemen and Somalia - which have become overrun by insurgencies, terrorist groups and pirates. As fragile and failed states, much is made of weak governance in these two countries. Yet this approach has been limiting. Closer investigation of the broader Gulf of Aden region reveals that many security challenges are not nationally confined but are interconnected. Others, due to large internal variation caused by the diverse manifestation of tribes and clans, are local. In both cases, a new framework of analysis is needed, one that looks at the whole of their territories and the Gulf of Aden at once. This book does just that, offering a new take on the Yemen/Somalia security conflagration
