Journal of Early Modern History

"These essays succeed both in exposing nuance in the evolution of cultural stereotypes in situating the process of Othering in the zones of ongoing and immediate interaction. So, indeed, does the book itself—a product of creative interaction between scholars from Hungary, Turkey, Romania, and the United States, gathered together at the Central European University. Since this book appeared, Hungary’s xenophobic president, Viktor Orbán, has forced that institution to relocate to Vienna, where one hopes it will enjoy a friendlier reception. The tragic irony of this volume is that its host has fallen victim to the very forces of Othering that its contributors so ably expose."
