Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This groundbreaking volume investigates the processes of globalization in Istanbul, one of the oldest and grandest of world cities. Explaining the course of the conflicts and the compromises involved in maintaining a precarious urbanity, this theoretically informed volume focuses on the fields of struggle ranging from politics to heritage, humor to music, public space to housing.

Book News Annotation:

Ten contributions written by mostly Turkish scholars of anthropology, sociology, music, and other fields investigate the processes of globalization in the city of Istanbul. Among the topics: Islamic chic fashions, and changes wrought upon the housing market by globalism.
