Summary

Much to the surprise and chagrin of Western observers, Islamic political parties have enjoyed growing popularity in Turkey since the 1990s. In this ethnographic study, White (anthropology, Boston U.) draws upon interviews she conducted over a 20-year period with ordinary residents of Istanbul to analyze the reasons behind the success of the Turkish Islamic movement. She concludes that the key to the movement's strength lies in the grassroots nature of vernacular politics rather than in religious ideology.
