A modern history of the Kurds by David McDowall( Book )

78 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this narrative, the first comprehensive account of recent Kurdish history, David McDowall traces the roots of Kurdish nationalism from the collapse of the Kurdish emirates in the nineteenth century and the consequent crisis in tribal politics, through the post-1918 peace settlement for which the Kurds were wholly unprepared, to the slow emergence of an educated non-tribal class during the middle years of this century. This new class faced two enemies. Externally, it had to resist the recently established regimes in Iran, Turkey and Iraq, all of which equated modernization with state nationalism, ethnic subordination and centralization. Internally, it had to transform a society based primarily on the socio-economic ethic of tribal patronage to one based on ethnic identity. McDowall shows how in each of these countries the struggle has taken on its own characteristics, problems and prospects; why pan-Kurdish unity still proves so elusive; and how governments have used the internal fault lines of Kurdish society to impede national progress. He also explains why the Kurdish question is unlikely to disappear and examines the likely prospects for the future

In this new and wide-ranging book, David McDowall, author of the highly respected 1986 MRG report on the Palestinians, traces their story from the late nineteenth century to the present day.

The Palestinians by David McDowall( Book )

33 editions published between 1960 and 1998 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1918 Christian and Muslim Arabs formed over 90 per cent of the population of Palestine. Fifty years later, those left were a powerless minority in their own land, while most were refugees outside Palestine. Since 1967, Israel has been an occupying force in Gaza and the West Bank, expropriating for example over 60 per cent of the West Bank's land area, dispossessing many Palestinians. While Israel's actions have been condemned in United Nations Security Council and General Assembly resolutions, Israel continues its actions largely unchecked. Within Israel, Palestinians are systematically discriminated against in almost, all areas of society. While condemning the Israel governent's policies, the Report also discusses the abuses of the newly-established Palestinian Authority. The Report provides information on the outlook for Palestinian society and examines why the peace process - once seen to offer a constructive way forward - is now in tatters. The Report offers a concise and accessible analysis of the background to this situation and cogently argues that the international community must act as a matter of urgency to enable a just settlement to be found - one that promotes and protects Palestinians' rights and enables Israel and the Palestinian Authority to work towards peaceful coexistence - based on respect for international law.
