This review is from: Crescent and Star: Turkey Between Two Worlds (Paperback)
When we travel, I like to read a book about the country's history before we go so I have a better understanding of the people and the places.
This book is excellent for that purpose. It is not a chronological History of events, but short (about 30 pages each) essays about a person, an event, the culture, ethnic groups and religions. I found it very easy to read and it kept my interest.
I would recommend it for someone who wants to know more about Turkey's culture.
