It began with unexpected news from home. In January 2010, Dani Rodrik 
and Pinar Dogan, married Turkish economists at Harvard University, got 
word of a dramatic story hitting newsstands in Istanbul. There had been 
a plot to topple the government. It involved terrorism. And its 
ringleader was a retired general named Cetin Dogan — Pinar’s father. 
Within weeks the general would be in jail. And his case would upend 
Rodrik’s life, turning the prominent economist into a criminal sleuth 
and political crusader.
