In the year since Islamic State tore through Iraq and proclaimed a caliphate straddling the border with Syria, the Kurds have emerged as a lead actor in the global war against the extremist group and an important partner in the campaign to "degrade and destroy" it. However, the story of the Kurdish fighters known as peshmerga -- literally "those who confront death" -- is yet to be told. This book seeks to establish who these men are, and what has motivated them to lay down their lives in one abortive revolt after another over the past century. It will trace the peshmerga's ongoing and far from complete evolution from a rag-tag guerrilla force into a regular army. From their early beginnings in the short-lived Kurdish Republic of Mahabad to the current standoff with Islamic State, the peshmerga have come to embody the Kurdish nationalist struggle in Iraq and beyond.more

English is a West Germanic language that arose in the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of England and spread into what was to become south-east Scotland under the influence of the Anglian medieval kingdom of Northumbria. Following the economic, political, military, scientific, cultural, and colonial influence of Great Britain and the United Kingdom from the 18th century, via the British Empire, and of the United States since the mid-20th century, it has been widely dispersed around the world, become the leading language of international discourse, and has acquired use as lingua franca in many regions. It is widely learned as a second language and used as an official language of the European Union and many Commonwealth countries, as well as in many world organizations. It is the third most natively spoken language in the world, after Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.
