    Reviews

    "Zerrin Özlem Biner's book offers sharp analysis of how past violence, the built environment, and law shape the circumstances in which different people in the city of Mardin in southeast Turkey confront the present and envision futures."—Stef Jansen, Manchester University

    "States of Dispossession is a highly original and rich ethnographic and theoretical work on violence in the Kurdish region of Turkey. It fills a pressing need."—Lale Yalçin-Heckmann, Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology
