It provides a critical assessment of its history; salient dimensions of its sociopolitical, religious, socioeconomic, cultural and intellectual fabric; insights into the unique quintessential traits that determine the place of the Jewish community of Aden as a cultural and spiritual phenomenon within Yemenite and world Jewry. It also affords a glimpse into the relationship between Jews and Muslims in Aden. The book should be of special interest to a wide range of scholars, particularly in the following areas: the British Empire; the Middle East; Jews of Arabia; Jewish-Arab relations; Jewish historiography; Judeo-Arabic; theology; folklore; anthropology, and ethnography. The volume is based on a study of hundreds of yet unpublished legal texts and documentary material."@en ;
