A Fez of the Heart: Travels Around Turkey in Search of a Hat Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. “A modern travel classic” (Herald Express).

Book News Annotation:

Chronicles the dark side of the Red Cross organization, showing how it became an enthusiastic promoter of militarism from the 19th century through WWI. Describes the organization's role in encouraging mass involvement of women on the home front and in pioneering propaganda that made preparation for war a normal and desirable activity. Includes b&w illustrations.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
