Cool for Qat: A Yemeni Journey: Two Countries, Two Times: A Yemeni Journey 1930-2004

by Mortimer, Peter


“‘Touching, thought-provoking and, at times, humorous’ – North Tyneside News Guardian“”‘A humorous Englishman-abroad travelogue. But it has a serious side. Mortimer weaves in the story of the Arab Riot of Yemeni seamen in South Shields and discovers the racial mistrust of 1930 has strong parallels with 2005’ – Newcastle Upon Tyne Journal

“‘An honest, sympathetic, sometimes self-deprecatingly humorous but illuminating book that is deeply relevant to the troubled times we’re currently living through’ – Shields Gazette
