WAS £29.99 £14.99

Product description

Published in 2000 by the State University of New York Press. Includes page notes, bibliography and an index. Illustrated with many examples of cartoons.

An illustrated work focusing on the ways in which satirical publications revealed evolution in Ottoman society. The author, Palmira Brummett provides a new vision, through the prism of 100 cartoons, of the confrontation between tradition and modernity, 'Orient' and 'Occident', and rhetoric and reality. Taking a unique period in modern Middle Eastern history, the Ottoman Constitutional Revolution of 1908, Brummett examines the Istanbul satirical press and artfully weaves the narrative and images of political, economic, and cultural transformation to create a new vision of the Middle East at the end of the empire.

In pretty good condition throughout. Some light fading around the spine of the cover, which is lightly rubbed on its edges. Crease on half-title page. Fresh and clean with a tight binding. No annotations.
