Covering its people, history and culture, this book provides a concise history of Kurdistan. Under the Ottoman Empire, Kurdistan was the name given to the province in which the Kurds, a nomadic non-Arab ethnic group, formed the largest population. But re-mapping, wars and the growth of modern nation states have turned Kurdistan into an imagined homeland. The Kurdish question is one that continually reappears on the political stage because of the strategic location of Kurdistan. In tracing the ways in which Kurdistan has been represented and politicized, the author considers the plight of the oppressed Kurdish minority in the modern nations of Iraq, Iran and Turkey.
