Taking an in-depth look at distinct aboriginal cultures, these comprehensive volumes balance information about both traditional and modern lifeways. From their history and cultural practices to their religions and the landscapes they call home, discover the intricacies of each featured native culture. Supports the national curriculum standards Culture; Time, Continuity, and Change; People, Places, and Environments; Individuals, Groups, and Institutions; Power, Authority, and Governance; Production, Distribution, and Consumption; Science Technology and Society; and Global Connections as outlined by the National Council for the Social Studies. The Kurds are a non-Arab Middle Eastern minority population that can be found in Turkey, Iran, and Iraq, with smaller communities in Syria, Azerbaijan, and Armenia. The world's largest national group without a nation state, the Kurds were traditionally nomadic herders but are now mostly seminomadic or have integrated into stable communities. Despite their lack of a nation, the Kurds have had a lasting impact on the development of the countries they live in.
