"If I am asked to recommend one book on modern Turkey, this is the one I recommend. Berkes is superior to all others because he alone examines the complex relationship between economic and technical change, and political and religious developments in the transformation of Turkey from a traditional to a secular state... Even now, Berkes offers much that is new and critical to our understanding of modern Turkey... It would be an excellent book to teach from." -- Professor Feroz Ahmad, Boston University
