Shibam in Wadi Hadramaut, Yemen

Daniel Martin Varisco, Chair of the Hofstra University Anthropology Department, and of literary fame for writing Reading Orientalism: Said and the Unsaid (whom I had the good fortune to meet once upon a time) recently wrote a painfully strong counter-attack on the geopolitical situation in Yemen, a place very close to his heart (and his studies). It can be found in his wonderful blog, Tabsir.
