Synopsis : In this work, the authors offer a picture of 20th-century Turkey and its formative past: the strengths and weaknesses of the Ottomans, the Armenian tragedy, the Kurdish struggle, and the controversial legacy of the brilliant but autocratic founder of the Republic, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. They also examine the new leaders such as the late Turgut Ozal and Tansu Ciller, who broke taboos, ushered in new freedoms and led their formerly introverted country onto the international stage. Lastly, they explain how the new Islamist-led government constitutes not a revolution but perhaps a fresh synthesis with the past.

Critique: "A well-balanced book ... affectionate and respectful, but highly critical, at the same time. It reads seamlessly." -- Louis de Bernières, the Observer Review, June 15, 1997

The best general survey of modern Turkish politics in English ... should become required reading for Western diplomats and politicians. -- Noel Malcolm, the Sunday Telegraph, June 22, 1997

``One of the best accounts of Turkey’s recent political history.'' -- Orhan Pamuk, Times Literary Supplement, August 8, 1997

``This is ... precisely the good readable introduction to Turkish politics which has been cruelly lacking for at least a generation'' -- Edward Mortimer, Financial Times, August 2, 1997

``This is a pragmatic, brisk trot across the territory, written out of an awesome depth of first-hand knowledge of the country'' -- Arminta Wallace, Irish Times, July 19, 1997
