    • Editorial Notes

      • [On Nov. 30, 1970, the name of the People's Republic of Southern Yemen was changed to People's Democratic Republic of Yemen. Coexistent with these successive jurisdictions but independent of them is the State of Yemen (with capital at Ṣanʻāʼ). Effective May 22, 1990, the People's Democratic Republic of Yemen merged with the Yemen Arab Republic to form a new single state, Yemen, with its capital at Ṣanʻāʼ]
