Kurds of Turkey : National, Religious and Economic Identities (Hardcover) (Cuma u00c7iu00e7ek)
About this item
The Kurds of Turkey are not a homogenous group. This is something that is often overlooked. In fact, Kurds in Turkey have many diverse political and ideological orientations. Focusing on the elites of these informal groups-national, religious and economic-Cuma Çiçek analyses the consequences of the divisions and subsequent prospects of consensus building. Using an innovative theoretical framework founded on constructivism, the 'three 'I's' model and various strands of sociology, Çiçek considers the dynamics that affect the Kurds in Turkey across issues as diverse as the central state, geopolitics, nationalism, Europeanisation and globalisation. In so doing, he examines the consensus-building process of 1999-2015 and presents the possible route to a unified Kurdish political state. Çiçek's in-depth and meticulously researched work adds an indispensable layer of nuance to our conception of the Kurdish community. This is an important book for students or researchers with an interest in the history and present of the Kurds and their future in Turkey and across the Middle East.
