The Kurdish people have begun to establish themselves as a political force. Their situation illuminates the burning question of the Middle East: how do ethnicity and self-determination interact? Bringing together several disciplines, including history, anthropology, sociology, politics, and linguistics, the contributors here consider the factors that make the case of the Kurds so critical. Examples are drawn from the modern histories of Iraq, Turkey, and Iran.
