East Faces West; Impressions of a Turkish Writer in India: Halidé Edib
We are introducing a new voice to the existing debates, the voice of Halidé Edib, who played such a critical role in defining Turkish identity in a colonial context. We re-issue The Conflict of East and West in Turkey with notes on major events and personalities.
In the eight lectures delivered at Jamia, Halidé Edib expounds the idea of the East and West with utmost clarity. Her intervention evoked responses from, among others, Mahatma Gandhi, Bhagwan Das, M.A. Ansari and Mohammad Iqbal.
