A Fez of the Heart : Travels Through Turkey in Search of a Hat, Paperback Book

A Fez of the Heart : Travels Through Turkey in Search of a Hat Paperback

Description

This is Jeremy Seal's quest, by means of a fez, for the heart of a country culturally and spiritually at odds with herself.

The fez's opposing associations - both revered Eastern-Islamic headdress and banal tourist souvenir - exactly reflects Turkey's cultural faultline.

While Turkey pays court to the EC and becomes the latest mecca for mass-tourism, the resurgent voices of Islamic traditionalism and Kurdish separatism are stark reminders of the country's complex cultural topography.
