Revue de presse

A book that makes a real contribution to Yezidi studies.' --Philip G Kreyenbroek, Professor of Iranian Studies, Georg-August University, Gottingen

'An invaluable introduction to Yezidi architectural and spiritual history - An indispensable reference book.' --Sebastian Maisel, Assistant Professor for Arabic and Middle East Studies, Grand Valley State University, Allendale

Présentation de l'éditeur

Yezidism is a fascinating part of the rich cultural mosaic of the Middle East. Yezidis emerged for the first time in the 12th century in the Kurdish mountains of northern Iraq. Their religion, which has become notorious for its associations with 'devil worship', is in fact an intricate syncretic system of belief, incorporating elements from proto-Indo-European religions, early Persian faiths like Zoroastrianism and Manichaeism, Sufism and regional paganism like Mithraism. Birgul Acikyildiz offers a comprehensive appraisal of Yezidi religion, society and culture. Written without presupposing any prior knowledge about Yezidism, and in an accessible and readable style, her book examines Yezidis not only from a religious point of view but as a historical and social phenomenon. She throws light on the origins of Yezidism, and charts its historical development - from its beginnings to the present - as part of the general history of the Kurds. The author describes the Yezidi belief system (which considers Melek Taus - the 'Peacock Angel' - to be ruler of the earth) and its religious practices and observances, analysing the most important facets of Yezidi religious art and architecture and their relationship to their neighbours throughout the Middle East. Richly illustrated, with accompanying maps, photographs and illustrations, the book will have strong appeal to all those with an interest in the culture of the Kurds, as well as the wider region. 'This is a major, innovative study of one of the least known religious communities of the Middle East - Will probably long remain the definitive work on Yezidi material culture.' - Martin van Bruinessen, Professor of the Comparative Study of Contemporary Muslim Societies, Utrecht University; 'A fascinating narrative and photographic journey through Yezidi religion, society and material culture.' - Nelida Fuccaro, Lecturer in Modern History of the Arab Middle East, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London

HASH(0x9c475e70) étoiles sur 5 false evidence appearing real 11 novembre 2010
Par joe tolson maitrya9@m - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book presents itself as a scholarly account of the saga and religious culture of the Yezidi faithful. It would more honestly be presented as an achetectural history of Yezidi monuments with details of this people's history and a scanty review of their religious belief and practice.

The author has no sense of the independent, phenomenologically autonomous nature of religion. She has desperate need of a competent editor. The book contains wierd shifts of focus. The author seems ignorant of the history of "Middle Eastern" religious groups (eg not even mentioning the difference between Catholic and Orthodox Chaldean Christians). Her English vocabulary is hillarious (eg refering to the icons of the Sanjaks as "banners" and labeling the celebration of a religious service as the clergyman's "effectuating" of the rite.

It seems that the author wanted to write an archetectural history and felt that she had to add ill informed and superficial chapters of political and social history, religion and customs either to add enough pages to achieve publication or as a way to try to justify her presentation of the work as in some sense a deep or analytical or appreciative presentation of Yezidi experience.

I was deeply disappointed with this book after long awaiting its publication. Sixty bucks for that???!!!

I never read this book, but from the review I read here, the author sounds like an idiot, and he sounds really smart. Not all women are stupid, Joe, but i don't blame you if you thought they were. How can they charge so much?! Wendy
