The Kurdish Quasi-State

The Kurdish Quasi-State

Denise Natali

Syracuse University


“The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) is not just one of the most important developments in the Middle East, but is also an important experiment in state building. Natali, who has been able to observe the evolution of the KRG from its inception, provides a sophisticated analytical approach to its institutionalization, shortcomings, and successes. Changing international boundaries will make this book a must for scholars working on similar cases.”
Henri J. Barkey, editor of Reluctant Neighbor: Turkeys Role in the Middle East

“Dr. Natali offers an insightful, empathetic, and comprehensive analysis of political, social, and economic change that has occurred in the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) since 1991, but especially after 2003. Drawing upon a wide variety of source materials, including extensive interviews in the KRG, Natali presents the most comprehensive analysis to date of the political and economic change that has transformed the Kurds from a marginal to a central player in post-2003 Iraqi politics.”
Eric Davis, author of Memories of State: Politics, History, and Collective Identity in Modern Iraq
