The modern nation-state of Turkey came into being in 1923 In the wake of World War I following almost 600 years of the reign of the Ottoman Empire. It is a country steeped in history and contradictions with which it struggles as it seeks its place in the 21st century. Because of my interest in the Kurds of Turkey I have devoted comparatively little time to traveling in non-eastern Turkey, with the exception of the glorious days spent every year in Istanbul.
