Reports and Handbooks from the Aden Archives
Before the unification of the Yemen Arab Republic and the People’s Democratic Republic of Yemen in 1990 “two Yemens” co-existed uneasily side by side, separated by uncertain boundaries and widely different political systems. The British, settled in Aden since 1839, were determined to extend their influence into the outlying areas of the Aden hinterland. The Aden archives (now part of the Asia, Pacific and Africa Collections in the British Library) are the records of successive British administrations in Aden between 1839 and the British withdrawal in 1967. They are a unique source of information on international activities in the area and on local politics and social and commercial developments.
The material complements the files in the companion set,
“British Intelligence on Yemen, c. 1880-1948” and takes the story up to the end of British colonial rule.
