The 14 articles of this year's annual are devoted entirely to the historiography of the art and architectural history of Turkey. The influence of Ataturk and his pervasive promotion of the Turkish nation are a frequent subject, though the reader will be struck by the new take on the ideas of both westernization and Orientalism to be found in the invention of Turkish art and architectural history in the 19th and 20th centuries, with articles on formalism, Arthur Upham Pope, and the influential and controversial Austrian art historian Josef Strzygowski. The volume is oversized (8.75x11"), beautifully illustrated with color and b&w plates, but not indexed. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
