The Kurdish national movement : its origins and development by Wadie Jwaideh( Book )

14 editions published between 1960 and 2014 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A seminal work in the field of Kurdish studies, Wadie Jwaidehʼs pioneering research, published for the first time, presents a detailed analysis of the early phases of Kurdish nationalism and offers a framework within which to understand the movementʼs later development. The thesis was never published during Jwaidehʼs lifetime, but its fame spread by word of mouth and many scholars have recognized its importance not only as a study of the earlier periods of Kurdish nationalism but also as a model of understanding its subsequent history. Jwaideh was born in the southern Iraqi city of Basra, into an Arabic-speaking Christian family that later moved to Baghdad. Because of his intimate knowledge of the land and its people, Jwaideh developed a shrewd insight into Kurdish society and politics. He convincingly demonstrates the rich historical roots of the Kurdish national movement, offering a new interpretation to the Kurdish political circumstance, which is often viewed as a series of isolated events triggered by economic upheaval or political dissatisfaction. This complex and layered history of the Kurdish nationalist movement offers a valuable perspective from which to view the current conditions in Iraq. Jwaidehʼs sensitive and prescient treatment of this region gives his study great contemporary relevance

The siege of Mosul and Ottoman-Persian relations, 1718-1743 : a study of rebellion in the capital and war in the provinces of the Ottoman Empire by Robert W Olson( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Olson's "The Siege of Mosul and Ottoman-Persian Relations, 1718-1743: A Study of Rebellion in the Capital and War in the Provinces of the Ottoman Empire" tells the epic story of how the failed economic and diplomatic polices of the Ottoman Empire from 1718 to 1743 resulted in the inability of the Porte to come to the aid of the people of Mosul in 1743 when it was attacked by Nadir Shah Afshar, the greatest Shah of Persia since the time of Shah Abbas the Great. Olson brilliantly accounts the reasons why Nadir Shah, the great conqueror of Mughal India in 1739, was also unable to capture Mosul in 1743. The siege became a symbol of patriotic war, a jihad, for the defense of the homeland. This book could hardly have appeared at a more propitious time in the history of the peoples of Iraq and Iran and the Middle East. In a new introduction, Olson stresses that the major geopolitical and geostrategic consequence of the siege was that Great Britain and Russia...two non-Muslim empires...were then to dominate the Middle East and Central Asia (and India) right up to 1948. The Ottoman and Persian failures at Mosul in 1743 should have served as lessons well learned. But 274 years later, as the current 'Battle for Mosul' rages...they were not
