"This collection of essays is a core resource for anyone with a serious interest in Iraq and the U.S. military. . . . A good representation of the major issues confronting Kurdistan, Iraq, and their neighbors as of spring 2004. I learned even where I disagreed."-Publius: The Journal of Federalism "An outstanding collection which illustrates the virtue of academic engagement with current predicaments."-Times Higher Education Supplement "This is the first detailed scholarly study of the kind of federation that would best serve the interests of the Kurds and the other peoples of Iraq-Arabs, Turkomans, and Chaldean Assyrians. Highly recommended."-Choice "Adds up to a strong pitch for a viable Kurdistan within an Iraq federal state-or even an independent Kurdistan if the several contending forces in Iraq will not accept federalism. Much has happened since mid-2004 when this book went to press [but] the analysis and prescription presented here remain relevant."-Foreign Affairs "When more than one hundred London-based diplomats, politicians, journalists, and international affairs analysts turn out for a discussion of a book, one knows that the book is timely and has something to say about pressing current international affairs and about its topic's potential for impacting regional and international geopolitical alignments. This is what happened on 31 May 2005 at Chatham House, a British think tank associated closely with the United Kingdom's Foreign Ministry. The book discussed was The Future of Kurdistan in Iraq, edited by Brendan O'Leary, John McGarry, and Khaled Salih. The Future of Kurdistan in Iraq well deserves the prestigious turnout it produced."-Mediterranean Quarterly
