"Unmaking North and South" revisits the Yemeni past by situating the historical construction of Yemen's north and south as bounded political, social, and moral spaces in the broader context of imperial rule, state formation, and religious reform in the Indian Ocean arena. The study is centered on the formation of the British Aden Protectorate and the Zaydi-Shiite Imamate of the Hamid al-Din family in the period between 1857and 1934.Focusing on the British creation of a series of 'native states' on the model of princely India in the Yemeni south and Imam Yahya Hamid al-Din's formation of a hybrid state based on Ottoman state forms and Sunni reformist ideology in the north, the book demonstrates the extent to which Yemen's modern history was rooted both in the structures of the British Raj and the intellectual debates of the greater Sunni Muslim world. The book uses a variety of case studies dealing with imperial state ritual, arms smuggling, cartography and colonial ethnography, debates over the nature of the Islamic polity, and an undeclared war between the British and the Yemeni Imamate in order to re-center the history of Yemen in a trans-regional context. Moving deftly between narratives of the colonial, local, modern, and Islamic, Willis questions the historical inevitability of the post-colonial Yemeni nation and suggests other modes of narrating Yemen's contested past.

John M. Willis revisits state formation and religious reform in Yemen during a period of imperialism, transition. Its strength lies in its interweaving of the colonial, the local, the modern, and the Islamic and in its effective deployment of a comparative analysis that works back and forth between the British Protectorate in the south and the independent Imamate in the north.
