A study of Ethnicity in Iran Case study The Lakk M. Reza Fariborz Hamzeh’ee(PhD, Dr. phil, PD, Dr.habil.) Razi University PressKermanshah 2006.
This book is the result of an ethnological and sociological investigation of ethnic identity in Iran. The study follows a qualitative method of research and has been performed mainly in three fields:
First, it moves within the theories of ethnicity and ethnic groups. Ethnicity is a new branch of ethnology and social anthropology, which was brought to life after Fredrick Barth and his colleagues published their important book called: “Ethnic Groups and Boundaries”, in 1969.
I the second phase or field of the study, cultural sociological methods have been used to find out the factors inducing frequent population movements of the Kurds in general context of Iranian history.
The last part of the study is devoted to documentation and study of a large portion of oral traditions specific to the concerned people, namely the Lakks. This would be the first time that so much of the oral traditions related to two ceremonies of the Lakki speakers have been collected and published.
This book has a relatively detailed English introduction including following titles: “Methodological Background”, “Who are the Lakki Speaking People”,” Location”, “Language”, “Historical Background”, “Historical Personalities among the Lakk”, “Religion”, “Culture of the Lakk”, “What is Chelseru?”, Chelseru Folk Poetry”, “What is Mur?”.
