The Kurds of Iraq

Michael M. Gunter

St. Martin’s Press


This book briefly reviews the background of the Kurdish national movement in Iraq, and then devotes the bulk of its analysis to the uprising which followed the 1991 Gulf War, the subsequent negotiations, U.N. peacekeeping operation, and creation of a de facto Kurdish state, as well as the vitally important policies of Turkey.

The analysis concludes that, despite many remaining difficulties, there is now reason to hope that the long nightmare of the Kurds in Iraq might perhaps be nearing an end.

Michael M. Gunter is Professor of Political Science at Tennessee Technological University and a former Senior Fulbright Lecturer in International Relations in Turkey. His previous publications include books on the Kurds in Turkey and on Armenian terrorism, as well as numerous articles in such journals as the American Journal of International Law, Orbis, Middle East Journal, Orient, and International Organizations, among others.



Gunter’s study is a must read for anyone interested in Kurdish nationalism and the Kurdish question. It is an essential work for understanding the geopolitical and geostrategic changes that have taken place in the Middle East as a result of the Gulf War.”
—Robert Olsen, author of The Emergence of Kurdish Nationalism: 1880-1925
