9780745326696: The Kurds in Iran: The Past, Present and Future

This is one of the first comprehensive accounts of the situation of Kurds in Iran. The authors provide an overview of the issues facing Kurds within the country and the way they have been affected by geopolitical changes in Iran's neighboring states.

The book offers a historical overview of Iran's development since World War I through the revolution of 1979, the war with Iraq, and the emergent state policy toward its Kurdish population. It provides a thorough critique of Iran's human rights record, especially as regards minorities and women.

Kerim Yildiz and Tanyel B. Taysi address Iran's relationship with its neighbors and the West, the implications of Ahmadinejad's rise to power, and the impact of the Islamic state on human rights. They analyze Iran's prospects for the future and how the resolution of the Kurdish issue in Iran affects the future of the region as a whole, as well as Iran's international policy and relations.
