The Emergence of Modern Turkey

Third Edition

Bernard Lewis

Studies in Middle Eastern History

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 new chapter, Lewis discusses the origins of the book in the Cold War era and 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 its growing neutrality and internal opposition from religious fundamentalists and Islamic parties. It examines such issues as Turkey's inclusion in NATO and application to the European Union, and its continued 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.
