Edinburgh University Press just released Islam in Modern Turkey, by Kim Shively. The book is an introductory text focusing on the relationship between religion and politics in Turkey over the 20th and 21st centuries. It is geared particularly for undergraduates and for general readers who do not have a lot of background knowledge about Turkey.

Thanks Martin - I used your book a lot when conducting background reading for my dissertation, and also to plan some of my lectures here. One of my favourites on the topic!
Glad to hear you're using the film The Black Stork. If your students are confused by it, you might have them read 3 short encyclopedia entries I wrote that might help:
“Eugenics,” “Haiselden, Harry,” and “Black Stork,” in Encyclopedia of American Disability History, ed. Susan Burch (NY: Facts on File, 2009), pp. 114-15, 333-37, and 418-19..
Of course chapters from my book The Black Stork would be a good follow-up.
