Brian Silverstein believes that much the most interesting "critical histories of the present" in Turkey are being formulated by Islamist writers who are little-known outside, even in other Muslim countries, but are highly resonant within Turkey, writing columns in dailies and weeklies as well as articles and books in scholarly venues. He introduces us to the thought of two of them, Ismail Kara and Dücane Cündioǧlu, engaged in the reinterpretation of the relation of Islam to modernity in a country where the conjuncture of the two began under the rule of the Ottomans and continues under the very different conditions of the republic.
