Pressestimmen

Navaro-Yashin's highly innovative use of an ethnographic approach to establish evidence to support her two major arguments--concerning the shared political culture of secularists and Islamists and the regeneration of the state through the margins--is extremely successful. A welcome addition to the ethnography of Turkey, this study will be also of use to readers interested in debates on civil society, the public sphere, nationalism, and subjectivity.
