Call Number: ATA 956.1 LEW
Publication Date: 1961
Written by renowned scholar Bernard Lewis, The Emergence of Modern Turkey has established itself as the preferred one-volume history of modern Turkey. It covers the emergence of Turkey over two centuries, from the decline and collapse of the Ottoman Empire up to the present day. In a newchapter, Lewis discusses the origins of his book in the Cold War era and the events that have taken place since its first publication in 1961. This new edition addresses Turkey's emergence as a decidedly Western-oriented power despite internal opposition from neutralists and Islamic fundamentalists.It examines such issues as Turkey's inclusion in NATO and application to the European Union, and its involvement with the politics of the Middle East. Authoritative and insightful, The Emergence of Modern Turkey remains the classic text on the history of modern Turkey.

One Hundred Years / Legacies: the Lasting Impacts of World War One. Secular Turkey.
Despite the occupation of Istanbul by the French, British and Italians after World War I, Prof. Nur Bilge Criss says the ultimate outcome was an unforeseen one as Turkey was the only defeated country able to determine its own political culture and its regime.
Emre Kongar, "Turkey's Cultural Transformation", in Gunsel Renda and C. Max Kortepeter, ed., The Transformation of Turkish Culture, The Ataturk Legacy, (The Kingston Press. Inc. Princeton, New Jersey, 1986), pp. 19-68.
The Turkish experience in social and cultural transformation is unique not only because of its totality and success in an Islamic society, but also because of the synthesis it sought: an amalgamation of western and pre-Islamic Turkish cultures to replace the previously dominant Islamic culture.
THE EMERGENCE OF TANZİMAT IN THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE
Mustafa Reşit Paşa1
. known as the author of the Gülhane-i Hatt-ı
(The Edict of the Rose Chamber) bid farewell to his entire household on
the morning of November 3, 1839, before he left for the imperial gardens
referred to as Gülhane Parkı, where he was to ceremoniously announce
the famous reform edict. The Paşa, as an experienced statesman, was
still well aware of the challenge he was confronting in pronouncing this
document bearing the reflections of the French Revolution. These were
principles such as humanism, liberalism and nationalism, all products
of western mentality. Reşit Paşa was to recite them to the Ottoman
society, completely isolated from the west for many centuries.
