Today on Uncommon Knowledge, journalist Claire Berlinski, who lives in Istanbul, of all places, explains why Americans should pay attention to Turkey.

Americans are asking themselves what the West’s relationship with the Islamic world is going to be, and what it means when you say “moderate Islam,” and whether we have friends in that part of the world.
