The video program produced based on the book presentation
events of "Crescent & Star: Turkey Between Two
Worlds" by its author Stephen KINZER in New York
in October 2001. Thus the author also presents the television
The book presentation events organized by Middle East
Forum, Turkish American Business Forum and Turkish American
First edition of the book published in September 2001
right after the September 11, and Afghanistan issue was
centered in the world political arena, and there had various
strategies to involve one way or another of Turkey to
"anti-terrorist" coalition. Nearly two years
later, we are in the post-war era of Iraq, which also
involves one way or another of Turkey since the beginning.
In Stephen KINZER's book as well as in his New York City
presentations, KINZER ambitiously and passionately highlighted
Turkey's strategic place and importance for America as
well as the world. The program conveys some highlights
from his presentations, and connects his vivid and dynamic
ideas of Turkey's near history, the time the book published,
and today as well as reflects to us the author's suggestions
and hypothesis of Turkey which can be a leading country
for the rest of the Islamic Word for the next 50 years,
if Turkey acts in time.
The events video-taped (October 2001), produced and edited
(August 2003) by Bircan Unver. Still-images of Turkey
provided by New York Turkish Culture and Promotion Office.
"Crescent & Star" video program will be
re-run under the Light Millennium Television (LMTV) series
at QPTV in the following months as well.
