This book is an ethnographically based investigationof Turkish modernities in which the domains of state,Islam, and neoliberalism, in all the multiplicitieseach entails, are struggling for political, economic,social, and cultural domination. Yet, they are notentirely oppositional as the three domains’interactions contribute to keeping overlapping andever evolving versions of patriarchies in place. Iexplicate my arguments through a focus on theProvince of Hatay and its population of Syrian AlawiArabs. Attending to their cultural and historicalspecificities, I contextualize both the region andits peoples with the formation of the Turkish stateand the rapid and complex transformations that areoccurring in Turkey at this time. Addressing Hatayand its ethno-religious minority through theirparticipation in Turkish modernities provides freshperspectives on such issues as the erosion of stateled modernization, the Islamist challenge, ethnicseparatism, Turkey’s burgeoning free market, and thenation''s integration into the global community. Thisbook enhances knowledge and understanding of theunderstudied Syrian Alawis of Hatay, and to new modesof research on Turkey.
