TAYLOR, Scott. Among the "Others" : Encounters with the forgotten Turkmen of Iraq . [Includes author's hostage ordeal "Five Days in Hell" captured by Ansar al-Islam terrorists]. (Ottawa): Esprit de Corps Books, (2004). Pp. [1]-208. Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated dark card covers with blue spine. "Despite constituting approximately ten percent of Iraq's population, the 'forgotten' Turkmen are often grouped with other factions when foreign analysts and commentators refer to the ethnic makeup of Iraq. In discussions concerning post-war political representation, it is common to hear specific reference made to Shiite Arabs, Sunni Arabs, and Kurds, while the remaining factions - the Turkmen, Yazidi, Sabia, Marsh Arabs, etc. - are often collectively referred to as the 'others'. In addition to presenting a history of the Turkmen people in Iraq, the book also includes several of Scott Taylor's personal observations of a people that have suffered through decades of political oppression and ethnic violence." - from the rear cover.
