Book Description

‘It was January 1993 when a kindly but disbelieving Turk in an ill-fitting suit and a homburg approached me as our flight was called at Heathrow Airport . . . ’ --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Inspired by a dusty fez in his parents' attic, Jeremy Seal set off in 1993 to trace the astonishing history of this cone-shaped hat. Soon, the quintessentially Turkish headgear became the key to understanding a country beset by contradictions. Seal's investigations took him from the fez-topped headstones of Istanbul's ghostly cemeteries to the remote town on the Black Sea where Ataturk, the father of modern Turkey, first banned the fez in 1925. From there Seal traveled around the country, visiting eastern cities where intractable fez wearers were once hanged, exploring the troubled Kurdish southeast, watching the production of fez-shaped hats for whirling dervishes in the mystical central city of Konya. The result of his unusual journey is an engaging and agile mix of history and travel, politics and reportage. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
