Rate this:
Journalists who have long reported from Turkey describe the country for general readers and tourists. After a brief historical glance, they begin with the fall of the Ottoman Empire and its heritage, then discuss the failings and triumphs of the people and government in a balanced manner. Armenia, the Kurds, Ataturk, and new leaders breaking taboos are among the topics. A gallery of black-and-white photographs illustrates the mix of cultures.
