The Day Turkey Stood Still is a unique behind-the-scenes story of the first headscarved woman to be elected into the Turkish Parliament and the harsh reaction against her election. The book reveals for the first time what happened behind closed doors to prevent Merve Kavakci from taking her oath of office, and it deconstructs her vilification by the government, the military, the media, and the political parties. The book also uses this fascinating true story to promote a greater understanding of contemporary Turkish politics and to illustrate the ongoing tension between Turkey's military-secular bloc and its predominantly Islamic population.
This highly-accessible book will resonate with Western readers who want to know more about this fundamental issue and gain a greater understanding of women's issues, religious conflicts, political Islam, human rights, and the struggle for democracy in the Middle East. The Day Turkey Stood Still will be required reading for any academic who wants to understand the dynamics and undercurrents of Turkish politics today.
