Portrait of a Turkish Family by Irfan Orga

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing Realism, 26 Jun 2001
This open, vivid biography shows how ordinary Turkish people suffered great family and economic losses during the First World War. A fresh well written account which is enlightening as much as it is educational.
Classic Turkish Cookery by Josceline Dimbleby

The photographs of the dishes bring out the colour of Turkish cuisine, and the Basan's personal touch adds to the cookbook's readability. The book provides background to the origin of most of the dishes, and so is informative of the whole cuisine, and is not just a cookery menu.
The Turkish Labyrinth by James Pettifer

Pettifer has an easily readable writing style, but most of the book lacks real insight and exposes the author as more of an academic writer than an original one. Many references to Turkish socialogical issues verge on the racist. Pettifer expsoses his Athens and Balkans academic roots and biases by producing an incredibly negative, demeaning and ultimately depressing account which offers no constructive criticism to his convoluted weaving of political issues. The only credit the book has is that it does list the issues facing Turkey today, in a fairly concise manner.
