Eighty years have passed since Mustafa Kemal Atatürk founded the Turkish Republic out of the ruins of the Ottoman Empire and set it on the path of modernisation. He was determined that his country should be accepted as a member of the family of civilised nations. Today Turkey is a rapidly developing country, an emergent market and a medium-sized regional power with the second strongest army in NATO. It is an open country which attracts millions of tourists, thousands of foreign businessmen and hundreds of researchers. They enjoy Turkish hospitality and experience its rich landscape and history, but many find it hard to form an overall picture of the country. In this sequel to his acclaimed biography of Atatürk, Andrew Mango provides such an overall portrait, tracing the republic's development since the death of its founder and bringing to life the Turkish people and their vibrant society. The Turks Today interprets the latest academic research for a broader audience, making this highly readable book the authoritative work on modern Turkey.… (mais)

I read this prior to visiting Istanbul and it did give me a good feel for the recent history and current geopolitical position of modern Turkey. The book is broadly divided into two parts - the first dealing with the history since the establishment of the republic and the second part looking at the nature of the country in very recent years.

The first part makes rather tough reading. The events immediately following WWI are not covered at all well and then the coverage of the following ~60 or so years of political history is a bit confusing. To be fair to the author, politics in Turkey has been very turbulent so this can be excused, although more coverage of the early 20s and the war of independence would have been helpful.

The second half is devoted to aspects of modern Turkey, including the role of religion, politics, regional & ethnic separatism, economics, Ankara as captial and Istanbul as the country's cultural heart. This was really interesting and exactly what I had purchased the book for.

Other reviewers have commented on the objectivity of some of the content - notably Kurdish issues and the treatment of Armenians. In my opinion, the book is written from a firmly nationalistic perspective and is not altogether unbiased, particularly concerning the Kurds. However, this is quite obvious and can therefore be taken account of by the reader. If it had better maps, I might have given this four stars. ( )
