Olga Demetriou / Yabancı Dilde Kitaplar
Genre: Politics & Social Sciences

“…a book that is well placed to become an essential reading for anyone interested in the study of borders, minority rights, Greek-Turkish relations and politics in South-eastern Europe more broadly. Western Thrace is a region that is constantly undergoing political, spatial and demographic transformations and Demetriou already highlights in the conclusion and postscript new sets of questions that may guide future research.” · The Cyprus Review

“Capricious Borders is immensely interesting and insightful. It is also much needed as how minoritization emerges a nationalist, colonial, and neoliberal project becomes increasingly relevant to anthropologists interested in Southeastern Europe.” · PoLAR

“This analytically vigorous and meticulously researched study forms an extremely valuable contribution to the literature on Western Thrace and beyond. Demetriou’s analysis of the minority condition is useful, after all, in understanding also many aspects of the majority condition, past and present, without relying on abstract generalizations. Demetriou opens up her case study to much broader methodological questions by carefully examining its specificities.” · Journal of Modern Greek Studies

“…this book achieves an immense evocation and provocation. We are privileged to have the resource of such a rich, theoretically robust ethnography. It bears critical lessons not only for all students of the Balkans and southeast Europe, but for all scholars of modern sovereignty, contemporary governmentality, and their discontents.” · Southeastern Europe

“This book is well-conceived, coherently structured, beautifully written and analytically sophisticated. It is a thoughtful, insightful and persuasively argued account of how through marriage, land transactions, naming, etc., the traces of the state underpin the construction and production of ‘minority’.” · Hastings Donnan, Queens University, Belfast
