Description/Abstract

This thesis will be based on the presumption that a certain degree of wealth is necessary in a country in order to fuel a completely successful revolution. Throughout our course this semester, a major topic of political discussion (if not the main topic of political discussion) has been the Arab Spring and the revolutions taking place recently in the Middle East. Relating to the country I have been assigned specifically, Yemen, it appears as though it is impossible for these political revolutions to be successfully accomplished, especially to the degree of complete or near-complete democratization, due to Yemen’s extreme level of poverty among its citizens, which is still an enormous issue in the current day.
