The book traces the history of the Kurds by presenting photographs and accounts by colonial administrators, anthropologists, missionaries, journalists, and others who have traveled to Kurdistan over the last century. The book’s mode of organization is influenced by collage, and its environment juxtaposes different orders of historiographic evidence.

Pictures, personal memoirs, government reports, letters, advertisements, maps, etc. all vie with each other and present different constructs. The reader discovers the voices of the Kurds that contest the Western representations of them.
