Kurdish fighters are often in the news, fighting on two fronts against Daesh in Syria and Turkey at their back. But who and what are the Kurds? This lucid introduction presents a brief history of the Kurdish people, their culture, and the region they inhabit. It traces the nation's fortunes under the Ottoman Empire and Kemalist Turkey, charts the rise of Kurdish nationalism, and assesses its prospects in a volatile region of shifting boundaries.
