Ürünün Tanıtımı

’Popular history at its best, authoritative and hugely entertaining. Few places were as colorful as Istanbul between the wars, and Professor King captues all the chaotic biro and contradictions of a city, and a culture, reinventing itself. ’


- Joseph Kanon, author of Istanbul Passage


Istanbul Between The Wars: the hub of modern cosmopolitanism at the heart of the Islamic world. Spies, jazz dancers, revolutionaries, beaty queens, and diplomats all plied their trades. While a multiethnic Ottoman Empire transformed itself into a Turkish republic, Istanbul remained a global crossroads, hosting Russian exiles, Jewish refugees, and larger-than-life figures such as Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, Leon Trotsky, the future Pope John 23, and Muslim feminist Halide Edip. Scrupulously reseached and eleganrty written, this kaleidoscopic portrait it also a modern parable of the perils of nationalism.


’A mare’s nest of intrigue, violence, sex and espionage, all set against the slow dimming of Ottoman magnificence. I loved this book. ’


- Simon Winchester, author of Krakatoa


’Brilliant, entertaining, authoritative. ’


- Simon Sebag Montefiore author of Jerusalem


’Rich, stimulating narritive. ’


- Economist


’Superb. . . . . A sepia-toned classic!’


- Robert D. Kaplan, author of The Revenge of Geography
