Turkey Beyond Nationalism explores the historical impact, both gains and setbacks, of Turkish nationalism in the 20th century and examines the conditions which have contributed to its evolution towards post-nationalism. The development of a liberal, multicultural society is particularly topical in view of Turkey's membership of the EU, as this has proved to be a vehicle of post-nationalist transformation in Turkey in the last few years. By thoroughly investigating the nationalist fabric of modern Turkey in the first half of the 20th century, this book casts a new light on the present challenges. It is an important contribution to a vivid international debate.
