Description
The Kurdish people of Iraq have been making headlines for decades; in the 1980s and early 90s they were known mostly as victims of Saddam Hussein's brutal suppression, and in the mid-90s they succumbed to their own heavy infighting. Since then, however, they have begun to be recognized for their success in achieving a high degree of independence and prosperity within Iraq. This is an illustrated history of the Iraqi Kurdistan Region, a country-within-a-country governed by the highly autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government, possessing a 200,000-strong army, its own border patrols, and even its own postage stamps. Acknowledging the IKR's military, political, and humanitarian issues of the past, this book primarily focuses on their farming methods, life in the villages, and the position of women in Kurdish society, as well as journalism, telecommunications, leisure, and the archaeological treasures of the region.
