In the space of a generation, Cyprus has experienced an anti-colonial struggle, post-colonial chaos, internecine fighting and hatred, a clash between Muslim and Christian civilizations, civil war, invasion, population displacements and physical pastition. The narrative of Cyprus' recent history has created numerous attitudes and prejudices which run deep. This book sets out to discover "The Other" - the much-maligned Turks. Papadakis travelled to Constantinople to learn Turkish. Here, he learned that it is actually Istanbul, that Turkey was not the place of his imagined demonology, and that Turks were in fact rather like Greeks. Armed with these new insights, he returned to Cyprus and locked into the mutually contemptuous embrace of both communities, continued to explore their common humanity and understand what divided them. His focus was on Nicosia, where the people who once lived together in one neighbourhood found themselves separated by a "Deas Zone", two armies and a UN force. This book records his journey into the Dead Zone, and into the realms of memory and history.
