This chapter focuses on how opportunities for Yemenis have been shaped within the space created by state/empire. Here, the discussion centers around Yemeni interaction with state/space in the fields of economy and politics, and the more intangible field that relates to state mentality. Continuing with this examination of the interaction of Yemenis with state/empire, the chapter discusses the ways in which Yemenis have interacted with the economic field. It particularly looks at how their economic existence was restructured by colonial power and the formation of enclosed boundaries in the region. It also traces how this relationship has changed over time, taking into account the changing nature of state and capital.

Keywords:   economy, state mentality, economic opportunities, colonial power, enclosed boundaries, empires, Yemenis
