9780814707227: Turkey, from Empire to Revolutionary Republic: The Emergence of the Turkish Nation from 1789 to Present

2007 Choice Outstanding Academic Title

In October 2005, the European Union officially began accession negotiations with Ankara, making Turkey the first predominantly Muslim country to become a candidate for membership. Turkey is an historic crossroads, poised between Europe and Asia, Islam and Christianity, and is the fulcrum upon which great civilizations have turned.

In this authoritative history, Sina Aksin, one of Turkey’s most prominent historians, traces the roots of the Turkish Republic to the Ottoman Empire. Turkey, from Empire to Revolutionary Republic treats the period before, during, and after World War I, encompassing the fall of the Ottoman Empire and the rise of Atatürk. The book closes with three chapters on the 1980s, the 1990s, and the new millennium, concluding with the question of EU accession, and will attract particular attention for the sophisticated Turkish view it provides of the contemporary period.

Unlike most histories of modern Turkey available to Western readers, this clear and compelling work offers the unique perspective of a native Turk. This sweeping narrative will be essential reading as Turkey takes its place on the world stage.

Sina Aksin is a professor of modern history at the University of Ankara.

Review:

&“Of recent important works on the history of Turkey, this one should rank among the best in recounting the evolution of the modern state from 1789 to the present....The book is replete with important detail, well written in the translated form, and quite suitable to substitute for other works on the subject. . . . Essential.”
