A study of the production of a state-revering political culture in the public life of 1990s Turkey. It brings poststructuralist and psychoanalytic theory to bear on the study of the political. It focuses on the conflict over secularism in the aftermath of an Islamist victory in the city's municipalities.

Yael Navaro-Yashin is University Assistant Lecturer in the Department of Social Anthropology at Cambridge University.
Navaro-Yashin's highly innovative use of an ethnographic approach to establish evidence to support her two major arguments--concerning the shared political culture of secularists and Islamists and the regeneration of the state through the margins--is extremely successful. A welcome addition to the ethnography of Turkey, this study will be also of use to readers interested in debates on civil society, the public sphere, nationalism, and subjectivity.
