Turkey's modern history has been shaped by its society and its institutions. In this fourth volume of The Cambridge History of Turkey a team of some of the most distinguished scholars of modern Turkey have come together to explore the interaction between these two aspects of Turkish modernization. The volume begins in the nineteenth century and traces the historical background through the reforms of the late Ottoman Empire, the period of the Young Turks, the War of Independence and the founding of the Ataturk's Republic. Thereafter, the volume focuses on the Republican period to consider a range of themes including political ideology, economic development, the military, migration, Kurdish nationalism, the rise of Islamism, and women's struggle for empowerment. The volume concludes with chapters on art and architecture, literature, and a brief history of Istanbul.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A team of some of the most distinguished scholars of modern Turkey have come together to explore Turkish modernization....Concludes with chapters on art and architecture, literature, and a brief history of Istanbul. Supplementary material in this volume include: a chronology, illustrations and maps, a select bibliography, and an index." --American Reference Books Annual
"Students, both undergraduate and graduate, professors, teachers, doctoral candidates, and the general public have come to rely on Cambridge Histories as the best, most reliable, up-to-date surveys of regional or national histories. In that sense, the latest Cambridge History of Turkey, edited by Resat Kasaba with contributions from Turkish and Anglo-American scholars, does not disappoint.... The volume really represents a large step forward in the historical scholarship on modern Turkey." - World History Bulletin
