⌧ Best 蓮 Crescent and Star: Turkey Between Two Worlds eBook: Stephen Kinzer: Amazon.fr: Amazon Media EU S.à r.l. to read ܥ Kindle By Stephen Kinzer ᠆ A passionate love for the Turkish people and an optimism that its ruling class can complete Turkey s transformation into a Western style democracy mark Kinzer s reflections on a country that sits geographically and culturally at the crossroads between Europe and Asia Kinzer, the former New York Times Istanbul bureau chief, gives a concise introduction to Turkey Kemal Ataterk s post WWI establishment of the modern secular Turkish state the odd makeup of contemporary society, in which the military enforces Ataterk s reforms In stylized but substantive prose, he devotes chapters to the problems he sees plaguing Turkish society Islamic fundamentalism, frictions regarding the large Kurdish minority and the lack of democratic freedoms Kinzer s commonsense, if naeve, solution the ruling military elite, which takes power when it feels Turkey is threatened, must follow the modernizing path of Ataterk whom Kinzer obviously admires a step further and increase human rights and press freedoms Kinzer s journalistic eye serves him well as he goes beyond the political, vividly describing, for instance, the importance and allure of the narghile salon, where Turks smoke water pipes Here, as elsewhere, Kinzer drops his journalist veneer and gets personal, explaining that he enjoys the salons in part because the sensation of smoking a water pipe is so seductive and satisfying Readers who want a one volume guide to this fascinating country need look no further Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc.Americans can no longer plead ignorance about modern Turkey Recently, several excellent books on the subject have been published by Western journalists Marvine Howe s Turkey Today LJ 6 1 00 , Nicole and Hugh Pope s Turkey Unveiled Overlook, 1998 , and now this work by Kinzer, former New York Times Istanbul bureau chief 1996 2000 All three are informative and provocative, though each has a slightly different focus Howe focuses on the role of Islam, while the Popes provide a narrative history Interspersing journalistic essays with personal vignettes, Kinzer discusses Turkey s potential to be a world leader in the 21st century, as it is truly a bridge between East and West, politically and geographically Kinzer questions Turkey s ability to achieve this potential, however, unless true democracy can be established Whether it can depends on Turkey s military, which, in order to ensure the continuation of the Kemalist ideal of a paternalistic state, has never allowed real freedom of speech, press, or assembly Kinzer argues persuasively that if the military refuses this opportunity, the consequences Islamic fundamentalism, Kurdish terrorism, denial of EU membership could be catastrophic for the Turkish state and its people An excellent, insightful work highly recommended Ruth K Baacke, formerly with Whatcom Community Coll Lib., Bellingham, WA Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc.
