First published in 1964, this is one of the most important books written on modern Turkey. Long unavailable in the English language, this edition brings new life to the influential ideas and analysis of Niyazi Berkes. Examining Turkey's transformation toward a secular

state, it traces the complex relationship between technical and economic changes, as well as the political and religious.

Turkey from a traditional to a secular state.... Even now, Berkes offers much that is new and critical to our understanding of modern Turkey.... It would be an excellent book to teach from (Professor Feroz Ahmad, Boston University)
