The dramatic story of the Kurds and their quest to create a nationessential reading for anyone who wants to understand how the turmoil in Iraq will play out. The American invasion of Iraq has been a success for one group: the Kurds. For centuries they have yearned for official statehoodand now, as one of the accidental outcomes of the invasion, the United States may have helped them take a big step toward that goal. Informed by his deep knowledge of the people and region, Quil Lawrence's intimate and unflinching portrait of the Kurds and their heretofore quixotic quest offers a vital and original lens through which to contemplate the future of Iraq and the surrounding Middle East.
