Provides an extensive list of documentary sources in the U.S. government dealing with U.S.-Kurdish relations.
The first ever sourcebook on U.S.-Kurdish relations, The Kurdish Question in U.S. Foreign Policy is a unique and timely work. It not only reproduces the full text of over 325 of the most important U.S. government documents dealing with the Kurdish question, but also provides both a guide to U.S. government sources for locating subsequently published materials and an annotated list of over 200 primary and secondary sources. Thorough and instructive, the book serves as an invaluable research tool and published national archive of U.S. government documents on U.S-Kurdish issues.
U.S. government information is crucial for any research or reading on American involvement in Kurdish affairs. This sourcebook alleviates some of the problems associated with using U.S. government documents, such as lack of access and difficulty in identifying relevant sources. It educates users on where and how to find relevant U.S. government information on the Kurds as well as other stateless nations. Detailed subject, author, and title indices are also included to allow easy access and identification of key materials. The first ever documentary sourcebook and annotated bibliography on U.S. foreign policy towards the Kurds, The Kurdish Question in U.S. Foreign Policy should appeal to all academic, special, and public libraries, as well as among government and news agencies.
