SÜRÜNE SÜRÜNE ERKEK OLMAK (İletişim, 2008, İstanbul)
Being a Man Through Creeping
In this book sociologist Pınar Selek investigates military service as a "laboratory of masculinity", a compulsive station on the way of ripening as a male. Military service is an experience where the male identity has to be proved, defended and exposed each and every day in all its dimensions. Pınar Selek analyses and interprets in her study based on the narrations of military service experiences of many men from different social conditions how this experience constructs male identity.
