Dr. Seddon has contributed an important and fascinating chapter to the modern history of Britain.--David Waines, emeritus professor of Islamic Studies, Lancaster University, UK

Originally arriving as imperial oriental sailors and later as postcolonial labor migrants, Yemeni Muslims have lived in British ports and industrial cities from the mid-nineteenth century. They married local British wives, established a network of Arab-only boarding houses and cafes, and built Britain's first mosques and religious communities.

Mohammed Siddique Seddon is lecturer in religious and Islamic studies at the department of theology and religious studies, University of Chester, England.
