Sabiha Sertel's memoirs have long been a unique and crucial view onto the dynamism and tumult of Turkey's 20th century. The appearance now of a careful, eloquent, and accessible English translation will open her expansive vista on Turkish politics, society, and culture to new audiences, and ought to be a cause for celebration.

The Struggle for Modern Turkey is a vivid translation of a phenomenal work of personal and political history. The life of Sabiha Sertel--a pioneering woman, pioneering Turk, pioneering socialist activist, and pioneering journalist--and the history she tells, will move and inspire readers. It will also unsettle myriad assumptions and truisms about life and politics in twentieth-century Turkey. Her courage and insight burst forth from these pages, and invite us into her struggle, which is, after all, a universal struggle for justice.

The story of Turkey's first female journalist, Sabiha Sertel, is not only about Turkey as it went through the pains of establishing as a modern country and certainly is not confined to its setting of the decades that led up to and follow the second World War. This is the story of a woman who had to stood up against racist and sexist slurs emanating from her male colleagues. This is the story of a journalist who had to face imprisonment, endured life- threatening attacks from the far-right and forced to live in exile. At a time when press freedom and truth itself are under attack around the world, Sertel's memoir provides timely lessons for us journalists and for anyone who cares for free speech and press. It is both a story of hope and courage but also of despair as it displays that time does not always bring progress but moves in a cyclical motion with the same horrifying fall backs lurking ahead for a liberal democratic order.
