Abstract

Book review of Book Review: Turkish Kaleidoscope: Fractured Lives in a Time of Violence Story by Jenny White; art by Ergu¨n Gu¨ndu¨z Princeton University Press, 2021.

A graphic novel written by a noted scholar contributes to a recent opening in Turkish culture for revisiting the era of the country’s 1980 coup, previously a taboo subject. The book evokes a time of political violence and student unrest and idealism, before a turn to repression and neoliberal capitalism.
