Amazon.com description: Product Description:
Along with the rest of the world, the country of Turkey is beset by efforts to push women into a particular prototype. This collection of essays seeks to combat such efforts by delving below the surface of common stereotypes surrounding Turkish women. Encompassing such diverse fields of study as political science, economics, business, ethnography, history, and literature, Deconstructing Images of “The Turkish Woman” includes experts from around the world who explore various images attributed to or imposed upon Turkish women. Written from the perspective of the 1990s, the essays evolve around the unifying theme of changes and continuities in the images of Turkish women from the late 19th century to the present.
