بەر لەوەی تیشکی مێژۆ هەڵبێت، زەوییە شاخاویەکانی له ناوچەکانی باكوری ڕۆژهەڵاتی ناوه - راست ماڵی كوردەكان بووە. له توركیا به "توركی شاخی" و هەروەها له سوریا و عیراق به "عەرەبەكانی ئومەوی" ناسراوتەوه و لەگەڵ ئه وشدا ئێران و ئازربایجان سەویت، تورکەمەنستان بەگشتی رەدی بوونیان كردەوه. سەر ئاڵوزبوونییكی زۆر لەسەر بوونی كورد و هەروەها مابینی خۆشیانیش هەیه. لەگەڵ دێرین بوونیان و سەرهەڵدانی ددواهاتەکانی ژیوپۆلیتیکی ئاواتەكانی نیشتیمانی خووازی كورد، سەرچاوەی زۆر كەم دەرباری كورد كراوە یان خۆ لەبەر دەست دایە. ئەم كتێبه، وەک یەکەم کتێب لە نموونەی خۆیدا، بە ئامانجی سەرچاوەێكی خێرا نووسراوەتەوە. نووسەرەكە، كه خۆی كوردە، چەردەیکی کورت بەڵام بە زانیاری بەڵگەنامەیی بۆ بابەتەکانی كوردی پێشکەش كردووە. بە بەر چاوو گرتنی سەرچاوەکانی زانیاری كۆن و نوێ، كتێبیەکە بابەتەکانی مێژو و هۆزناسی و جوگرافیا و كەلتوور و سیاسەتەكانی كورد بە خۆی دەگرتەوە.

Reading this book will take you through a journey of the history of a Nation which has been ignored in the recoded history of people in Middle East. The book will challenge what we have been told and creates series of logical question. It is a great source for learning about name, places, and figures that build the foundation of thoughts on Kurdish people's role in building the history of the region. This reading will give you a great source on Kurdish ancient religions as well as language and cultures.
