"Clearly written from a human rights perspective, The Kurdish Spring stands as a most-needed and refreshing guide for anybody politically and academically interested in this precarious moment for Kurds, peoples of the Middle East, and elsewhere." - Kurdish Studies, 2016, Volume 4, No. 1 "[T]he most concise account on the history of the Kurds of Iraq, Turkey, Syria and Iran since David McDowall's seminal book 'A Modern History of the Kurds' ... It is an updated, a very fresh information arsenal on the Kurdish issue and Kurdish history. There is no doubt that it will take its rightful place on the bookshelves of everyone around the world concerned with the issues of the Middle East." - Cengiz Candar, Al-Monitor "The Kurdish Spring gives the reader excellent insight into an important group in a difficult region of the world... a great read." - Don Delauter, The Voice of North Carolina
