Turkey's Engagement with Modernity Conflict and Change in the Twentieth Century by Celia J. Kerslake

Turkey's Enagement with Modernity explores how the country has been shaped in the image of the Kemalist project of nationalist modernity and how it has transformed, if erratically, into a democratic society where tensions between religion, state and society continue unabated.


'...does exactly what it promises...[it] will undoubtedly become a textbook that will be addressed in many political science courses in Turkey, and around the globe... It must be stated that the volume is a valuable and inspiring contribution to the existing academic literature on Turkey and will surely find its place in the syllabi of aspiring scholars of Turkey.' - Turkish Policy Quarterly'
