Turkey lies at the crossroads of history, and successive waves of conquerors – Hittites, Persians, Romans and Ottomans – have created a culture as rich and varied as any in the world. This collection of prose and verse ranges from the architectural glories of Istanbul to the mountains of Armenia, and includes writing by Homer, Herodotus, Goethe, Tennyson, Rose Macaulay and many others. Stoneman demonstrates that, while political circumstances may change, the lure of Turkey remains eternal.
