On the Waterfront is the semi-annual magazine of the IISH. This is issue 8

On the Waterfront : newsletter from the Friends of the IISH
Authors: Jan Lucassen, Mieke IJzermans
Place of publication: Amsterdam
Year: 2004 / Issue: 8 / Format: 16 pp.

Including Prof. dr. Martin van Bruinessen - "The Kurdish Movement. Issues, Mobilization, Organization". Lecture held on 4 December 2003, p. 10-12


This eighth issue of On the Waterfront features many of the Institute’s new acquisitions. While in the previous issue the contributions about Annie Adama van Scheltema - Kleefstra and Giangiacomo Feltrinelli related the history of the Institute, a contribution about Boris Sapir serves the same purpose in this one.

In addition to the summary of a lecture on the highly topical issue of modern Kurdish history, a presentation about the changes in membership is included for the first time. On the one hand, it reveals how much growth potential remains (and how much we need to grow). On the other hand, only now are we becoming aware how much has already been achieved by so few.

Just before the end of the year, we received a commitment for a wonderful donation from the United States. This addition, which arrived too late to be included in the figures for 2003, will be covered in the next issue.
