The Northern Region of Iraq is home to the nation's Kurdish population—a minority which suffered horrendous oppression under Saddam Hussein's regime. Today it has emerged from its troubled history to become the most prosperous part of the country and indeed a beacon to the surrounding region. Its substantial oil reserves, coupled with stable and practical political management, have resulted in a safe working environment. Increasing numbers of business travelers and expatriates, augmented by a flow of adventure travelers who come to experience the dramatic mountain landscapes, will provide a strong market for this, the only, travel guide to Kurdistan.
