About the Author E. B. Soane (1881-1923)

E. B. Soane was a pre-eminent expert of the Kurds, a kurdolog and wrote many articles and books about the Kurds and their language and culture. He worked at one time for the Imperial Bank of Iran and is probably best known for his book “To Mesopotamia and Kurdistan in Disguise”.
