Until the 1993 first edition of this book, one thing had been missing in Middle Eastern history—depiction of the lives of ordinary Middle Eastern men and women, peasants, villagers, pastoralists, and urbanites.
Author: Edmund Burke
Publisher: Univ of California Press
Until the 1993 first edition of this book, one thing had been missing in Middle Eastern history—depiction of the lives of ordinary Middle Eastern men and women, peasants, villagers, pastoralists, and urbanites. Now updated and revised, the second edition has added six new portraits of individuals set in the contemporary period. It features twenty-four brief biographies drawn from throughout the Middle East—from Morocco to Afghanistan—in which the reader is provided with vantage points from which to understand modern Middle Eastern history "from the bottom up." Spanning the past 160-plus years and reflecting important transformations, these stories challenge elite-centered accounts of what has occurred in the Middle East and illuminate the previously hidden corners of a largely unrecorded world.

David McDowall examines the interplay of old and new aspects of the struggle, the importance of local rivalries within Kurdish society, the enduring authority of certain forms of leadership and the failure of modern states to respond to the challenge of Kurdish nationalism.

When the Kurds came to the world's attention in April 1991, trapped in the mountains between Iraq and Turkey, Texas author/photographer Mary Ann Smothers Bruni was with them. Intrigued by their tenacity, Bruni spent the next two years documenting the Kurds and their ability to adapt and continue their lives under difficult, often tragic, circumstances. The text and photographs of her book Journey through Kurdistan reflect the Kurds' struggle, land, and lifestyle.Kurdistan, the home of twenty-six million Kurds, is located high in the Zagros Mountains where modern Turkey, Iran, and Iraq meet. When the Ottoman Empire collapsed following World War I, the Kurds were its only major ethnic group denied a state, making them the largest nation in the world without a country. Condemned to be a minority in the newly founded countries of the Middle East, Kurds suffered destruction of their villages, murder, pillage, rape, and chemical attacks on civilian settlements. After Saddam Hussein's defeat in the Persian Gulf War, Iraqi Kurds rose up against the Iraqi regime with disastrous consequences.
This is a definitive collection of Kurdish literature, published in English or translated. In fiction, essays, poetry, fables, and candid life stories, this book brings out the heritage of the Kurds. It does not shy away from painful realities, such as physical humiliation of women.
The Historical Dictionary of the Kurds covers the largest nation in the world without its own independent state. Scholars, government officials who deal with the Middle East and the Kurds, the media, and general readers will find this reference an accessible historical account of a group of people who are becoming increasingly important for the future of the strategic Middle East. Maps, a chronology, an introductory essay, a dictionary containing several hundred entries on various aspects of the Kurdish experience and an extensive bibliography comprise this volume.

As a modern state, Iraq has experienced an unhappy history. Most recently it became the focus of attention after it occupied Kuwait in 1990. In antiquity the area was home to the Mesopotamian civilizations of the Sumerians and Babylonians. In later centuries, Iraq became the battleground over which the Persian state and Turkish empire struggled for supremacy. Great Britain occupied Mesopotamia during the First World War, and the modern state of Iraq was created in the 1920s. This revised bibliography includes works on Iraq's modern history and ancient Mesopotamian history and archaeology.

Into Kurdistan is a journey through the lives of a people without a country. Part travelogue and part political commentary, it portrays both the pride and the oppression of the Kurdish people. Sheri Laizer recounts the drama of a family living close to the border, hearing gunshots and wondering if a favoured son will make it home at night. She shares the companionship of Kurdish women in the mountains, washing in the melted snow. She captures the ambiguity of Kurdish intellectuals entwined in the cultural life of Turkey, a country which refuses to acknowledge the very existence of Kurdish identity. And she paints a vivid picture of the centuries of tradition behind the people who have given the Middle East some of its greatest heroes, from Saladin onwards. Into Kurdistan uncovers the recent atrocities in Iraq, and the systematic persecution suffered by the Kurds in Turkey. In a marvellous blend of political commentary, folktale and sympathetic observation, Sheri Laizer helps us understand the people behind the headlines.

The Yezidi faith has fascinated and tantalized a number of Western scholars since the mid-19th century, but actual knowledge of the Yezidi tradition has remained relatively limited. During the late-20th century a corpus of Yezidi sacred hymns has come to light, which had previously been transmitted orally, and did not exist in written form until the late 1970s. These texts have offered a more detailed insight into the beliefs, observances, and background of the faith.

In Cooperating for Survival in the Positive-Sum Universe, Earl Willis proposed that the universe is actually causal and positive sum. This stance doesnt mesh with current scientific theories, but he argues we need to look at the universe in a new way. In this companion to his first book, Willis elaborates on his theory that the universe is real, rational, and causal, and under that basis he proposes the theory of contropy. This theory builds upon Darwins theory of evolution and further describes the evolutionary process to offer a new view of the world. It provides a simpler and more accurate description of reality than prevailing views. Willis argues that his theory explains the dichotomy of perspectives between many reasonable, intelligent people regarding political, economic, and even religious issues. These differences all hinge on whether someones fundamental point of view is individualistic or collectivist. Get ready to explore the philosophical, political, and economic implications of the theory of contropy, and find out how we can work toward a more positive future by Cooperating for Enhanced Survival in the Twenty-First Century.
