Kurdish Policy Imperative
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Kurdish populations of Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran are influential strategic players during a period of immense uncertainty and instability in Middle East politics. There is a growing sense that this may be a time of significant change for the Kurds, as witnessed in recent developments in Iraq and Turkey. This volume provides a nuanced understanding of the complex web of relationships between Kurds and regional states and the major issues affecting the various Kurdish communities. The book offers a timely reappraisal of the Kurdish political, military, social, and cultural systems as well as the importance of regional and international policies toward them. Contributors include Hashem Ahmadzadeh (University of Exeter), Michael Gunter (Tennessee Tech University), Kemal Kirisci (Bogazici University), Janet Klein (University of Akron), Brendan O'Leary (University of Pennsylvania), Robert Olson (University of Kentucky), David Romano (Rhodes College), Clemence Scalbert-Yucel (University of Exeter), NicoleWatts (San Francisco State University), and Stefan Wolff (University of Nottingham).
