Iraqi Kurdistan is in flux. Kurdish regions of Turkey, Iran, and Syria are also unsettled. ""Kurdish Identity"" gives voice to academics, diplomats, and Kurdish politicians in exploring the group often called the key to stability in the Middle East. The contributors to this volume examine the history, geographic and cultural differences, and Western perceptions of Kurdish identity. With a minimum of jargon and theory, the collection will significantly expand any discussion of the Kurdish issue beyond Iraq, and should become a valuable contribution to ongoing debates about the issue.
