"The Other Kurds offers the first account of a fascinating and complex tribal society under the British Mandate. The Yazidis fiercely resisted integration into the modern state of Iraq and, for at least two decades, failed to identify with the aspirations of mainstream Kurdish society and the rising Kurdish national movement. Nelida Fuccaro looks at community-state relations primarily from a Kurdish perspective and highlights new trends of inter-tribal mobilization and changes in Yazidi power structure."--BOOK JACKET." ;
