The position of the nineteen million Kurds is an extremely complex one. Their territory is divided between five sovereign states, none of which have a Kurdish majority. They speak widely divergent dialects, and are divided by religious affiliations and social factors.
The tragic and horrifying events in Iraq last year brought the Kurds to the center of worldwide attention. This book provides one of the first assessments of the Kurds, and examines social and political issues, legal questions, religion, language, and their modern history in Turkey,
Iraq, Iran, Syria, and the former Soviet Union.
