A Modern History of the Kurds

by

A Modern History of the Kurds Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David McDowall examines the interplay of old and new aspects of the struggle, the importance of local rivalries within Kurdish society, the enduring authority of certain forms of leadership and the failure of modern states to respond to the challenge of Kurdish nationalism.

Book News Annotation:

A detailed study of the people who flash briefly across the television screen from time to time. McDowell accuses modern states of failing to respond to the brutal oppression of Kurds by Iranian, Iraqi, and Turkish governments since the 19th century, and explains how rivalries within Kurdish society have kept a nationalist movement from developing fully. He draws extensively on primary sources. Revised and updated from the hard-cover apparently published in 1996.
