Publisher's Note

Protests worldwide followed the capture and trial of the PKK leader Abdullah ÷calan in 1999. But where does the PKK come from? What are its aims? Who supports it? What will its future be without ÷calan? And is there hope for a peaceful resolution to the Kurdish question in Turkey and a democratic future? This timely book seeks answers to these questions and provides an informative, up-to-date and readable account of the Kurdish reality in Turkey today. Its focus is a critical examination of the Kurdish nationalist movement--especially the largest and most powerful grouping, the PKK.
