The Yezidis are a Kurdish-speaking religious minority, neither
Muslim, Christian nor Jewish. Their ethnicity has been disputed,
but most now claim Kurdish identity. Their heartland, including
their holiest shrine, is in the Badinan province of Northern Iraq,
and it is the communities in this area which are the main focus of
this book. Their highly eclectic religion appears to contain many
elements of 'the religions of the book', especially Sufism, upon a
foundation of ancient Iranian belief and practice.
