Talk by Veli Yadirgi on his book The Political Economy of the Kurds of Turkey: From the Ottoman Empire to the Turkish Republic (Cambridge University Press, 2017) in which he analyses the socioeconomic and political structures and transformations of the Kurdish people from the Ottoman era through to the modern Turkish Republic, arguing that there is a symbiotic relationship between the Kurdish question and the de-development of the predominantly Kurdish domains.
