The Turks Today : Turkey after Ataturk Paperback



Eighty years have passed since Mustafa Kemal Ataturk founded the Turkish Republic out of the ruins of the Ottoman Empire and set it on the path of modernisation.

He was determined that his country should be accepted as a member of the family of civilised nations.

Today Turkey is a rapidly developing country, an emergent market and a medium-sized regional power with the second strongest army in NATO.

It is an open country which attracts millions of tourists, thousands of foreign businessmen and hundreds of researchers.

They enjoy Turkish hospitality and experience its rich landscape and history, but many find it hard to form an overall picture of the country. In this sequel to his acclaimed biography of Ataturk, Andrew Mango provides such an overall portrait, tracing the republic's development since the death of its founder and bringing to life the Turkish people and their vibrant society.

The Turks Today interprets the latest academic research for a broader audience, making this highly readable book the authoritative work on modern Turkey.
