Few places in the world have such a dazzling cultural legacy as southeastern Turkey, sometime home of Hittites, Assyrians, Parthians, Sassanids, Byzantines, Suriacs, Caliphates, Armenians, Kurds, Seljuqs and Ottomans.
Attention has been focused on the area for the past three decades as a huge and often controversial hydroeleectric power scheme has dammed the Tigris and Euphrates, creating this Land of the Lakes and bringing new life to this formerly impoverished region.
Local communities have been displaced and archaeologicsl sites flooded, but only now is it possible to begin to assess the longer-term effects of the project.
Writer David Barchard and photographer Manuel Çitak brilliantly reveal the story of the rebirth of Southeast Anatolia, a new land of water and increased prosperity.
The foreword is by the eminent historian Norman Stone.
Land of the Lakes is sponsored by the Nural and Cengiz Cosortium and distributed in Turkey by Dünya Aktüel Basin Yayin Tic. ve San A.S, Istanbul
