Description - Martyrs, Traitors and Patriots by Sheri Laizer

The Kurds are the largest ethnic group devoid of nationhood in the world. This book looks at what has happened to the Kurds since the uprising against Saddam and the exodus to the safe havens, the continuing guerrilla war in Kurdistan, and the policies pursued by Turkey, Iraq and Iran to deal with the Kurdish people. Sheri Laizer also provides an analysis of Kurdish "realpolitik", focusing on the political practices of the PKK and the other major Kurdish groups. The issues facing the Turkish parliament and army, the long-term strategies pursued by Iran and Iraq, and the evolution of Kurdish democratic institutions are brought to fore.
