Turkey: A Modern History

Предна корица
Palgrave, 1998 - 405 страници
This revised edition of Erik Zurcher's standard work - the first comprehensive history to appear in over twenty years - builds upon and updates its twin themes of Turkey's continuing incorporation into the capitalist world and the modernization of state and society. It begins with the forging of closer links with Europe after the French Revolution, the changing face of the Ottoman Empire in the nineteenth century, and argues that Turkey's history between 1908 and 1950 should be seen as a unity, and offers a strongly revisionist interpretation of Turkey's 'founding father', Kemal Ataturk. In the account of the period since 1950, the book focuses on the growth of mass politics; the three military coups; the thorny issue of Turkey's human rights record; integration into the global economy; the alliance with the West and relations with the European Community; Turkey's ambivalent relations with the Middle East; and the increasingly explosive Kurdish question. It also covers the worst economic crisis for 15 years in 1994, the continuing political instability and growth of Islamism.
