Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a review of the book Stolen Honor: Stigmatizing Muslim Men in Berlin. The double perspective, on men's struggle with stigmatised representations of masculinity, and on the German national imaginary, structures the book into two parts. The first part addresses representations of masculinity that have been shaped by anthropological research on the Ottoman Empire and the Turkish Republic, eighteenth-and nineteenth-century travel literature, films, and expert opinions of social advisors and scholars about the situation of Turkish immigrants in the Federal Republic of Germany. The second part of the book focuses on public debates in Germany that, in the author's opinion, contribute to the abjection of Turkish men and Islamic notions of gender. This section also includes a discussion of interpretations of universalistic principles that predominate in German society.

Keywords: Berlin; German society; Muslim men; Ottoman Empire; stigmatised masculinity; Stolen Honor; Turkish men
