Rubbing Shoulders in Yemen by Peter Twele

Having acquired official permission to carry out sociolinguistic research within North Yemen, Peter embarks on a series of trips into some of the remotest parts of the country ... regions not under government control at that time, and still not to this day. In Rubbing Shoulders in Yemen, Peter focuses not so much on his research, but rather on his unforgettable cross-cultural experiences and the extraordinary hospitality he received from friendly rifle wielding Yemenis and others he encountered.

He has also taught in the Linguistics programs at both Trinity Western University in Langley, BC, and at the University of Texas in Arlington.
