There is much to say for the arguments of such authors as Anderson (1983) and Gellner (1983), that the nation is a product of relatively recent technological and economic developments. Gellner's observations on the cultural gap that separated the elite from the rural producers in ªagro-litera teº societies are certainly relevant for the Kurdish case. Kurdish nationalism, if not engendered by the social and economic upheavals and labour migration which Gellner sees as the major factors, certainly owed its mass appeal to them.
This is a blanket name for various syncretistic, extremist Shi i sects, which have in common the deification of Ali and various beliefs of pre-islamic Turkish and Iranian origins (Mélikoff 1982). An important sub-group of Kurdish Alevis, those of Dersim (Tunceli), speak Zaza, but there are also numerous Kurmanji and even more Turkish-speaking Alevis (and most of the Zaza, it should be noted, are Sunni). In the Ottoman Empire, the Alevis were often persecuted, both for their heterodoxy and because they were suspected of pro-Iranian sympathies.
But in earlier times too, there were many people in the region who apparently had no clear-cut ethnic identity. Although most people must have had only one mother tongue, they did not necessarily define themselves by it. It has often been observed that the élite in the Ottoman Empire defined themselves as ªOttomansº rather than by ethnic labels (because, it has been suggested, ªTurkº and ªKurdº carried overtones of boorishness). 9 Even in the case of those who had a definite ethnic label attached to them, ethnicity was not always a very stable trait.
