The origin and purpose of the edited collection are described in the Introduction along with the general research methodology of the book. The methodology comes from an elementary concept in the study of international relations: governments operate on the basis of motives derived from various interests that shape their actions. In simple interactions between two or perhaps three governments, it is possible for decision-makers to have greater clarity to know what actions best serve their interests. But as the number of actors increases, motives become increasingly opaque, and amid resulting confusion, decisions become more irrational. This explains how Yemen became trapped in a highly destructive war with complex patterns of violence. The book is a work of contemporary history told from the perspective of different global, regional, and local actors in Yemen. Contributors analyze the country’s political transition between 2011 and 2014, the circumstances surrounding the collapse of its interim government between September 2014 and January 2015, the causes leading to war in March 2015, and the factors perpetuating warfare between 2016 and 2019. The book’s greatest merit is its development of a comprehensive analysis of Yemen’s political crisis and war by presenting different interpretations of the same events.
