Her books include a monograph on Afghan pastoralists, Bartered Brides (published under the name Nancy Tapper); Dancing in Damascus, a book of short stories about elite families in Syria which has been published in Arabic, Turkish and English; and, most recently, Thank God, We’re Secular, about nationalism, secularism and the politics of the Turkish state.
