Yemen: New Scenarios behind the Armed Clashes in Sana’a

Known and esteemed for the breadth and depth of his work in Islamic studies, Louis Massignon was anything but a man of libraries. Indeed, while he tried through culture to being two civilisations closer together which had been rivals for a long time and kept at a distance by mutual misunderstanding, he did not neglect the great challenges that were taking place under his eyes and in which were...
