Access from EThOS:
The research is both a study of the social organization of an under-researched community in London, the Alevi Kurds, and of the relatively high incidence of suicide amongst its young men. Drawing on Durkheim's theoretical postulate that suicide is a product of a lack of integration and regulation (anomie) it looks at how the institutions that came to integrate and regulate the first-generation in Turkey and London ceased to function for the second generation.
