Fascinating history of Turkey through the filter of one place, Varto. It's a good introduction to a very complex interplay of cultures, longstanding religious and territorial conflicts, and the reader ends up at a loss about how these issues will ever be resolved, which I think was also the point of view of the very articulate and intelligent author.
