Drawing on data from ethnographic fieldwork among civic activists and identifying a range of domestic and international socio-political contexts, Refractions of Civil Society in Turkey explores different perceptions of civil society in Turkey and pursues the general question of why civil society holds such power to move those who evoke it.
First, Kuzmanovic eschews the use of civil society as a normative concept that can be populated with particular types of organizations, ideologies, or cultures. This book will be a fascinating read not only for those interested in Turkey and Turkish civil society but also for those looking for a fresh conceptual approach to the study of civil society in general. In contrast to most of the existing literature, Kuzmanovic approaches civil society as a concept that is constantly in the making, evoked, and brought to life in different contexts. The significance of civil society in Turkey lies for Kuzmanovic in the concept's power as a meaningful and empowering concept for individual actors.

A must-read for anyone interested in the dynamics of change in a society which has often been forced into preconceived analytical straitjackets. Kuzmanovic shows how understandings of civil society are historically placed, relational, and essentially contested concepts that make sense only when examined as things that are created through performance. This makes for a fascinating ethnography. But Refractions of Civil Society in Turkey is also a powerful corrective to the paucity of detailed work on Turkey, which amply makes a case for the importance of the region.
