En sak som konfunderat mig under de år jag rest är att den unga generationen skiljer sig så enormt från tidigare generationer. Jag hade träffat dem vid flera tillfällen och jag har en son som föddes 1991 vars uppväxt jag följt på nära håll. Varför denna otroliga skillnad? Kunde det vara Internet, och i så fall, varför? Vad är det som gör att vi har en generation som har så hög empatiförmåga?

When writing a book, an author often has the sensation of being surrounded by that topic. In the case of anti-Americanism that experience was particularly strong. As the 21st century began it seemed as if the amount of criticism the United States was receiving around the world was matched only by the quantity of passionate debate about why this was happening.

A stock figure of modern political literature is the Latin American dictator, a beribboned generalissimo, overweight, corrupt, propping up rich landlords who live in luxury on the back of impoverished peasants, using the language of anti-Communism to justify crushing any possibility of reform. Clearly, such people were seen as villains.

This is the story of Istanbul--but also of Turkey, the Balkans, and the eastern Mediterranean--during World War II, based on extensive interviews and the use of archives, especially those of the OSS, which I was the first to see for this region.

The title was chosen in great sincerity because the theme here is to explain how the region’s modern history really is a tragedy.’ Terrible mistakes were made; the wrong roads were chosen. Bloodthirsty ideology took hold; pragmatism was thrown out the window. And yet alongside all of these disasters was a certainty of correctness and a violent rejection of even considering what had gone wrong.
