This new edition of The Kurds in Iraq brings the book fully up-to-date in the light of recent events in Iraq, and the ever-present danger of civil war.



Yildiz explores the impact of occupation and escalating violence. There is an entirely new chapter on Kirkuk, which continues to be of major strategic interest to the various powers in the region. There is also a new chapter on insurgency and sectarianism that examines the motivations behind the insurgency, the tactics that are used, and outlines possible ways to deal with it.



The book is a unique account of the problems that all political groups face in bringing stability to the country, as well as exploring Kurdish links and international relations in the broader sense. It should be required reading for policy-makers and anyone interested in the current position of the Kurds in Iraq.

«The book is a unique account of the problems that all political groups face in brinnging stability to the country, as well as exploring Kurdish links and international relations in the broader sense. It should be required reading for policy-makers and anyone interested in the current position of Kurds in Iraq.»

«A useful, practical survey of the Iraqi Kurdish experience up through and after the 2003 war. His analysis of the relationship existing between the United States, Turkey, and the Iraqi Kurds is particularly revealing.»

«Kurds are primarily known to much of the world as victims of Saddam Hussein's regime. Yildiz, a Kurdish refugee and executive director of the Kurdish Human Rights Project, reviews his people's demographics, history (including US involvement in Kurdish affairs), aspirations for an independent Kurdistan, and current humanitarian/economic challenges.»
