Published by Korotayev
Published in "Alternatives of Social Evolution". Ed. by N.Kradin, A.Korotayev, V.de Munck, V.Lynsha et al. Vladivostok: Dal'nauka, 2000. P. 242–257.
In the 1st millennium A.D. the North-East Yemen political system consisting of a weak state in its centre and strong chiefdoms on its periphery appears to have been transformed into a system consisting of a bit stronger state in its centre and true tribes (but not chiefdoms). There does not seem to be any grounds to consider this transformation as "degeneration", "regress" or "decline", as there was no significant loss of the general system complexity and elaboration, one complex political system was transformed into another one, structurally different, but not less complex, highly organized and sophisticated.
