Promotional Information

The first work in any Western language dealing with the development of Kurdish nationalism during this period.


"Having done considerable research into the background, nature, and results of the Sheik Said rebellion myself, I can assure you that Professor Olson's conclusions are new, grounded in the evidence, and very important!" William F. Tucker, University of Arkansas "Olson offers a chronological account of the first large-scale nationalist rebellion by Kurds in the part of Kurdistan that was and is under the control of Turkey ... The Kurdish rebellion, a prototype of post-World War I nationalist rebellions, was 'a genuine national response to fundamental dislocations in the political and socioeconomic spheres'. The Emergence of Kurdish Nationalism is detailed, heavily documented, and well researched and written ... He does insightfully discuss such general topics as nation and state building, the formation of nationalism and other ideologies, and the relationship between religion and nationalism ... This book is especially recommended for people who are interested in the international dimensions of twentieth- century politics in the Middle East, particularly as they involve ethnic and nationalist developments. Readers will be able to draw parallels with other groups, such as the Palestinians and the Baluch, many of whose members also hold strong nationalist aspirations and goals." Ethnohistory
