Summary The Turkish Novel and the Quest for Rationality' is the first book to contextualize the Turkish novel with regard to the intellectual developments motivating the Turkish modernization project since the 18th century. The book provides a dialectical narrative for the emergence and development of the Turkish novel in order to highlight the genre's critical role within the modernization project. In doing so, it also delineates the changing forms the novel assumes in the Turkish context from a platform for new literature to a manifestation of crisis in the face of totalizing rationality. Vis-a-vis modernization's engagement with rationality, 'The Turkish Novel and the Quest for Rationality' reveals unexplored ways of conceptualizing the development of the genre in non-western contexts
