Deniz Çifçi on the fissures within Kurdish politics in Turkey

September 24, 2019

Deniz Çifçi on “The Kurds and the Politics of Turkey: Agency, Territory and Religion” (IB Tauris/Bloomsbury). Based on extensive on-the-ground research, the book describes the diversity of interest and opinion among Kurds in Turkey. While the Kurds are often seen as a homogeneous group with unified demands, Çifçi paints a more nuanced picture.
