Abstract:

Zekiye Eglar was born in Georgia in 1910. Her mother was the daughter of a Georgian prince and her father, Suleyman Pasha, a general in the Czar's army, hailed from Azerbaijan. Their life in the southern Caucasus was strongly rooted in a Muslim cultural heritage. After the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 the family moved to Azerbaijan where Suleyman died and thence, around 1923, to the newly independent Republic of Turkey where Ataturk bestowed the surname Èglar' (intelligence) upon the family.

Eglar's academic career alternated between Turkey and the USA including studying in the 1930s in the US in the rapidly developing field of cultural anthropology with Ruth Benedict and Margaret Mead as her teachers. Although she had a keen sense of justice and fair play, she was not a public figure and did not engage in political debate in her adopted country. After teaching cultural anthropology at Ankara University, she eventually returned to Columbia where her PhD dissertation, Vartan Bhanji: Institutionalized Reciprocity in a Changing Punjabi Village was completed in 1958 and was published by Columbia University Press. Eglar later worked at Harvard on the sequel, The Economic Life of a Punjabi Village.

Zekiye Eglar had completely lost her eyesight by 1972 and her last trip to Pakistan was in 1976. She died in 1983. --Book Jacket.
