Rojava: Revolution, War, and the Future of Syria's Kurds


Manufacturer: Pluto Press

Product Information

'The Kurdish territory of Rojava in Syria has become a watchword for radical democracy, communalism and gender equality. While Western radicals project their own values onto the revolution, the complexities of the situation are often overlooked or misunderstood. Thomas Schmidinger provides a detailed introduction to the history and politics of the region, based on more than seventeen years of research. Outlining the history of the Kurds in Syria from the late Ottoman Empire until the Syrian civil war, he describes the developments in Rojava since 2011: the protests against the revime, the establishment of a Kurdish para-state, the conflices between the parties about the administration of the Kurdish territory, and how the PYD and its People's Councils rule the territory. The book draws on interviews with political leaders of different parties, civil society activists, artists, fighters and religious leaders in order to paint a complex picture of the historical conflict and current events.'
