About The Book
Faces of the State is a penetrating study of the production of a state-revering political culture in the public life of 1990s Turkey. In this new contribution to the anthropology of the state, Yael Navaro-Yashin brings recent poststructuralist and psychoanalytic theory to bear on the study of the political. Delving deeper than studies of nationalist discourse that would focus on consciously articulated narratives of political identity, the author explores sites of fantasy in the public-political domain of Istanbul.
The book focuses on the conflict over secularism in the aftermath of an Islamist victory in the city’s municipalities. In contrast with studies that would problematize and objectify religious movements, the author examines the agency of secularists under a state widely known for its secularist policies. The complexity and dynamism of the context studied moves well beyond scholarly distinctions between secularity and religion, as well as state and society. Here, secularism and Islamism emerge as different guises for a culture of statism where people from society compete to claim Turkish culture for themselves and their life practices. With this work that stretches the boundaries of regionalism, the author situates her anthropological study of Turkey not only in scholarship on the Middle East, but also in the broader problem of thinking Europe anew.
