For more than a decade, Turkey has been torn by a civil war between the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and Turkish security forces. So far, the conflict has claimed more than 19,000 lives and, as the conflict escalates, human rights abuses and death tolls continue to grow.Jonathan Rugman and Roger Hutchings provide a compelling introduction to the violent unrest between the PKK and Turks. Rugman relates the history of the PKK while eye-witnesses to the PKK war tell their stories alongside powerful images of the conflict.
