Kurdistan In the Shadow of History.

Seller ID: 1451

New York: Random House, 1997. First edition (pp. xvii, 388, index). Large quarto (23 cm) in pictorial dust jacket, blue cloth with gilt and impressed titles. Properly a pictorial history of the Kurdish people (a 'layering of narratives both textual and photographic'), not merely an illustrated text, "Meiselas assembles images from Western sources and from the trunks and personal albums of Kurdish families, oral histories, declassified government documents, newspaper clippings, and memoirs' and accounts from the 'perspective of travellers, missionaries, anthropologists, colonial administrators, and journalists, as well as the Kurds themselves." A brilliantly conceived and produced sourcebook by an award-winning Magnum photographer teamed with a leading expert on Kurdish history and culture. Quite a fine copy, a single mended tear to one dust jacket corner.

Price: $85.00
