About the Book

History of the Present A nation that fails to read and record its truths, will be unable, whether as individuals or society, to enjoy freedom and live with dignity I have called this book History of the Present because they are readings of the present , of the pressing passing Now-s that make history, of tomorrow’s’ yesterdays, and yesterdays of tomorrow. They are written in the heat of the events analysing backgrounds and context, seeing the event both as a process and part of the big picture. That is how a local event becomes a global one, and an apparent remote decision by an American President will have global repercussions for almost everyone in the modern globalised world and especially for countries and societies drawn to post 9/11 war on terror.Thus, viewing the current events from the standpoint of the people of Kurdistan, the articles and insights in this book will, I hope, allow you to live in history as it unfolds, with a strong moral principle guiding the mission and the vision: truth and nothing but naked truth.
