136 The ideal Kurdistan

From the nineteenth century, modernization coincided with nationalism, with myriad consequences, wherever cultural minorities and ‘stateless peoples’ had their own vision. Plans for an independent Kurdistan after the First World War foundered on the rise of Atatürk’s Turkey, within which two nationalisms now faced off against each other. The Kurds believed that they also had territory in Syria, Iraq, and Iran, as revealed on this map of the Socialist Party of Turkish Kurdistan.
