Anmeldelser

«Its an achievement of Blood and Belief that despite the bloodletting, Marcus still generates empathynot for the murderous Ocalan, but for the desperate Kurds who joined the PKK revolution feeling they had nowhere else to turn.»

The Washington Post Book World

«Blood and Belief offers unusual insight into the rebels' shadowy universe and, by extension, into Turkey's festering Kurdish problem. . . . [A] scholarly, gripping account.»

The Economist

«Marcus dispassionate recounting of events is impressive in its factual, documented style and avoidance of partisan shrillness. While never condoning any of the PKK’s excesses, she points out its one achievement: to have put the Kurdish problem on the agenda in Turkey and in front of the world.»

Bookforum

«Blood and Belief gives meaning and context to the grinding guerrilla war that claimed tens of thousands of lives.»

Boston Globe

«;Marcus dispassionate recounting of events is impressive in its factual, documented style and avoidance of partisan shrillness.»
