"Dr. Seddon has contributed an important and fascinating chapter to the modern history of Britain. Based both upon a wide reading of available secondary sources and his own hands-on field research, the British Yemeni's story begins with its origins in Arabia down to the moment when Aden was absorbed into the British Empire as a Protectorate (1839). The remaining narrative sensitively recounts the gradual increase and ongoing struggle of Yemen migrants to various cities across Britain confronted by economic deprivation and discrimination in both public and private spheres: and it traces, too, the role of a handful of dedicated religious leaders in tackling their externally imposed 'invisibility' to produce its present vibrant reality as Britain's oldest integrated Muslim community." - David Waines, Emeritus Professor of Islamic Studies, Lancaster University
