Turkey's modern history has been unstable and contradictory. National identity continues to be an issue as Turks are faced with joining the West and preserving their own culture. The emergence of Islamicism contributes to the question of how safe the secular constitutional democracy is.

Table of Contents

The Review - Daniel Mandel

"This is a useful scholarly compendium of the sort we have come to expect from Sylvia Kedourie."

"There is no doubt that the contributors to this study have been judiciousy chosen and that the book as a whole is a useful compendium of scholarship on Turkey."

Southeast European & Black Sea Studies

"subject of great interest to those who wish to understand the political, ideological and social environment in Turkey during the Kemalist era…useful and refreshing in that the majority of its papers seek to widen the lens through which the late Ottoman Empire and modern Turkey are usually studied and understood.
