Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Identity, Nationalism, and Cultural Heritage Under Siege: Five Narratives of Pomak Heritage from Forced Renaming to Weddings presents the table of contents, acknowledgements, and a list of tables and figures. The book deals with the most dramatic and visible part of the collective Pomak existence in Bulgaria: the various forced conversions/assimilations which ultimately defined the community's sense of self. It examines the policy and ideology of the vuzhroditelen protses, the Pomak identity crisis it generated, and the political resurrection of the notorious organization Rodina, which served as the revivalist propaganda machine. The book recreates the life story of a remarkable person, whom the annals of Ottoman imperial history overlook as petty local governor and Bulgarian historiography neglects quite purposely as "Turkish tyrant".

Keywords: Bulgaria; Cultural Heritage; Nationalism; Ottoman imperial history
