This book engages critically with mainstream accounts of ‘Anatolian Tigers’ in contemporary Turkey. Based on her  fieldwork in Çorum, Deniz explores the dynamics of medium-size businesses with a dual optic of political economy and moral economy. She demonstrates that the formation of the entrepreneurial stratum is a multifaceted process and zooms into a range of workplaces to show the entanglements of market and non-market dynamics in everyday life. This innovative work sheds original light on the role of kinship, religion and social values in shaping the everyday politics of labour.

Ceren Deniz taught ‚Economic Anthropology‘  at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg in 2020-2021.
