A Quest for Belonging is a collection of essays by Hans-Lukas Kieser, a historian of the Ottoman Empire. Kieser’s research interests include identities, nationalities and religious denominations in the late Ottoman Empire. While the Ottoman era ended with the massacres and expulsion of much of the empire’s Christian population, Kieser is also interested in the interactions between different groups prior to the First World War. Thus this volume includes essays on missionary activities, the Alevi sect of Islam and the development of Kurdish identity. Kieser does, however, explore how the issue of genocide continues to influence both how Turks perceive themselves and how they are perceived by others, especially in the context of Turkish candidacy for the European Union. He also addresses the development of a Turkish ethno-nationalism out of an imperial past. Kieser writes in the context of the continuing debates over what happened in the final Ottoman decades and the need to bring closure to this historical legacy.
