Turkey's Tigers [electronic resource]: Integrating Islam and Corporate Culture

Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
For years, Turkey has been run by a stridently secular business and political elite, while its devout Muslim citizens have been pushed to the political and economic fringes. But now, even the most committed Muslims are embracing Western-style capitalism and commerce-and are ascending in Turkish society at the ballot box and in big business. This Wide Angle documentary captures a modern-and to many Westerners, surprising-face of Islam rarely seen in the American media. The program follows prominent members of Turkey's up-and-coming business community-including two rival fashion entrepreneurs, one of whom has founded his company on Islamic principles-as they develop and carry out their manufacturing and marketing strategies. In addition, Turkish political cartoonist Salih Memecan discusses his work, Islam's relationship with the West, and the benefits of Turkey's association with Europe with anchor Daljit Dhaliwal.
