Turkey Beyond Nationalism: Towards Post-Nationalist Identities
Bloomsbury Academic, Oct 27, 2006 - History - 242 pages
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.
