More Description

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 modernization. He was determined that his country should be accepted as a member of the family of civilized 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 that attracts millions of tourists, thousands of foreign businessmen, and hundreds of researchers. They enjoy Turkish hospitality, experience its rich landscape and history, but find it hard to form an overall picture of the country. In this sequel to his acclaimed biography, Ataturk, Andrew Mango provides a rich 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 definitive work on modern Turkey.
