The Kurds a contemporary overview

Philip G. Kreyenbroek / Stefan Sperl


The tragic events of 1991 in Iraq brought the Kurdish question to the centre of the world stage.

What is the future of Kurdistan, with a people divided by religious affiliation, dialect and state boundary?

The Kurdish problem has attracted growing international interest and concern over the last two or three decades. This book offers valuable background information to the complexities of the problem, discussing social and political issues, legal aspects, religion, language and the modern history of the Kurds in Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Syria and the Soviet Union.

The book is intended for anyone whose interest has been stimulated by media coverage of Kurdish issues. It will appeal particularly to students and scholars concerned with questions of nationalism and cultural identity, and to those with a professional interest in the region or the immigrants and asylum seekers coming from it.

Philip G. Kreyenbroek is Lecturer in Modern Iranian Languages at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. He has published widely on ancient and modern Iranian religion, literature and civilisation. Stefan Sperl is Lecturer in Arabic at the School of Oriental and African Studies. He was formerly a staff member of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees.
