"Tremendously eclectic and classily produced . . . each volume gets under the skin of a country or a city in a multifaceted way that feels essential in these times of narrowing national horizons."-Caroline Sanderson, The Bookseller 


Turkey in Numbers

The National Obsession: Raki and Tea - Kaleydoskop

The Icon: Bülent Ersoy - Kaleydoskop

The Big Dig - Elif Batuman

Urban planners in Istanbul have a problem: too much history - and too many
agendas: which chapter of the past should they showcase? Turkey's pre-Islamic
origins, as promoted by Atatürk, or the Ottoman glories so dear to President
Erdogan's heart?

Don't Call It Soap Opera - Fatima Bhutto

Turkish TV series like The Magnificent Century are rivalling US programmes for
international popularity and taking the Middle East, Asia and Latin America by
storm. What is the reason for their global success?

The Thirty-Year Coup - Dexter Filkins

Was an exiled Islamic preacher behind the attempted military coup of 2016?
Dexter Filkins probes the secrets and mysteries of the Gülen movement and its
clash with former ally President Erdogan, following decades spent infiltrating
Turkish bureaucracy to undermine the secular state.

Business à la Turque - Alev Scott

A portrait of the Turkish economy, which is driven by an innate entrepreneurial
spirit and the great dream of instant wealth but perennially forced to deal with
political instability.

Eros and Thanatos at the Restaurant - Sema Kaygasuz

Although the Turkish feminist movement is more than a century old, women still
find themselves trapped between two opposing but equally suffocating ideologies
- one secular and one religious. Only recently have they begun to make their
voices heard within a patriarchal system dominated by men who 'love them to
death' but have no hesitation in killing them to keep them quiet.

A Story of Dust and Light - Burhan Sönmez

Every summer the writer Burhan Sönmez returns to the Anatolian village in which
he was born - but the only remnant of that unspoiled rural world, with its
traditions and apolitical religious faith, is the banned Kurdish language.

Turkish Nationalism and Its Historical Roots - Gerhard Schweizer

From the ruins of the Ottoman Empire - where Turks, Kurds, Armenians and Greeks
lived together in peace for centuries in a multi-ethnic state in which language
played no role in politics or identity - a new nationalism grew up that would
separate the different peoples and impose an enforced Turkification, the
principal victims of which were the Armenians.

No Fairy-Tale Ending: Hasankeyf and the Ilisu Dam - Ercan y Yilmaz

In the heart of the Mesopotamian basin, the cradle of the world's most ancient
civilisations, the city of Hasankeyf should have been an prime candidate for
UNESCO's World Heritage List - but rather than being flooded by tourists it has
been drowned following the damming of the River Tigris.

'I Can't Stay Silent': Turkish Rap - Begüm Kovulmaz

Turkish rap first emerged in Kreuzberg, Berlin, and reached Istanbul in the
1990s, where it remained a niche genre for many years. When it exploded into the
mainstream in the late 2010s the time was ripe for it to become the Gezi
generation's main forum for protest and the reclamation of their physical and
cultural spaces.

The Pen(cil) Is Mightier ... - Valentina Marcella

Satire is one of the few remaining channels for criticising the government in
Turkey. Undeterred, amid protest and censorship, cartoonists are continuing
their fight against attempts to squash the right to freedom of expression.

Ultras United: How the Gezi Park Protests Brought the Fans Together - Stephen

The 2013 protest movement was so widespread that it even achieved the miracle of
bridging the chasms between football's big three in Istanbul - Galatasaray,
Fenerbahçe and Besiktas - some of the most deeply felt rivalries in world

A Sign of the Times - Kaleydoskop
