The New Cultural Climate in Turkey: Living in a Shop Window by Nurdan Gurbilek

$ 32.00

The New Cultural Climate in Turkey is a beautifully written collection of essays by a leading Turkish literary intellectual, which presents a compelling analysis of the cultural climate in Turkey, making the argument that the dominant external clichéd dualities of East/West; Secular/Sacred; and Arabic/European should be replaced by a narrative of silence, repression and return. Comprising a sophisticated review of the history, culture and politics of Turkey since the 1980 military coup, this is the only book in English that analyzes the cultural aspects of modern Turkey in order to explore its place within global politics, a groundbreaking work for anyone with an interest in Turkey.
