About the Author
For Showan, originally from Kirkuk, Kurdistan/Iraq, a Swedish national and residing in Britain, politics has meant more than just something that caused him and his people pain and challenge to test their limits. It also meant a fascinating area where biology, psychology, social circumstances and history needed to make sense. This fascination meant that he was prepared to spend as long as it took to come up with something that is satisfactory to him. It took 23 years. He spent 8 years of this time in academia in Britain, which was made possible by a Swedish loan,(for which he is grateful). During these years he also got himself two beautiful daughters.
