Salih, Khaled, The Middle East Journal


Kurdish Culture and Society. An Annotated Bibliography, compiled by Lokman I. Meho and Kelly L. Maglaughlin. Westport, CT and London: Greenwood Press, 2001. xv + 314 pages. Appendix to p. 317. Name Index to p. 326. Title Index to p. 348. Subject Index to p. 365. About the compilers. $79.95.

While 60% of the sources are in English, the book includes items in Arabic, French, German, Italian and other European languages, with publications dating from the 1700s to the year 2000. A large number of the entries are accompanied by annotations of varying length and character. They are either written by Meho, or are extracted from other identified sources.
