The Kurds (December 1996)

From the MRG Archive

With a population of 26 million, the Kurds are the Middle East’s largest ethnic community without a state of its own. The persecution and state-sponsored violence endured by the Kurds is legion – exemplified by the razing of thousands of Kurdish villages in Turkey and the massacres resulting from chemical weaponry in Iraqi Kurdistan. David McDowall focuses on Kurdish history, society and Kurds’ changing way of life in the heartlands of Kurdistan – in Iran, Iraq and Turkey. A further valuable insight is given into the situation of Kurds in Europe, Lebanon, the former Soviet Union and Syria.
