This is an outstanding book that is well-researched and well-written. Johnsen offers a comprehensive look at the role that Yemen has played in terrorism since the 1980s, focusing most particularly on terrorist acts by Al-Qaeda. He discusses the history of Osama bin Laden and how the decisions of the U.S. and various countries in the Middle East affected Al-Qaeda's (and subsequently AQAP's) successes and failures. He also looks at corruption in Yemen and actions by its longtime president, Ali Abdullah Salih, the shrewd-but-fickle politician who always had his hand out for money but whose support for U.S. policies ran hot and cold. I highly recommend this book.
