Le « territoire tribal des Kurdes » et l'aire iraqienne (Xe-XIIIe siècles) : Esquisse des recompositions spatiales

Abstract : Since the very early stages of arabic historiography in the Nineth century, mention has been made of the Kurds by several authors. These Iranian populations, described as being fierce and rough, lived in the mountainous regions of the Middle East from the F•rs to the Taurus. This area crossed by the Kurdish tribes, this radius of action is an always shifting ideal, tribal and political space. Arabic medieval litterary sources seem to describe a reduction of what might be called the “tribal territory of the Kurds” during the twelth century. This zone seems to slide westward and to overlap with the “Iraqi space”. This phenomenon follows a political reshuffling born of Turkmen infiltrations and the counter-crusades led by the Zankid rulers.
