Product description

Review

'Impressive, and suggests a contemporary Herodotus at work ... Stone does justice to the enormous complexity of Turkish history'
--Standpoint

'Arresting ... authoritative and measured ... Stone's Turkey breaks the popular mould and introduces its readers to a place beyond their presumptions' --The Sunday Times

'Brilliant and readable ... pithy, straightforward, superbly argued and very funny ... This is a book you could easily read on a plane ride to Istanbul, and you should, too'
--Country Life

`Norman Stone is one of the great historians of our time ... a refreshing and sometimes surprising view of Turkish history' --Military Illustrated

'Stone's irreverent narrative is a spur to read more about a forgotten power that is central to Europe's history' --The Financial Times

'Lively, forceful and fast-moving'
--The Scotsman

'Gripping'
--The Catholic Herald

'An enjoyable gallop through the history of Turks' --The Literary Review

'However many histories of Turkey you have read, you will never have read one as incisive, combative and sure-footed as this one, which is also delightfully brisk and extremely funny' --Cornucopia

'An authoritative but clear guide to an extremely complex subject in a lavishly illustrated, easy-to-follow format'
--Good Book Guide

`A fanfare for modern Turkey and a vivid, provocative, often funny, always insightful account of how it came about ... If you really don't know why a portrait of Ataturk hangs in almost every shop in Turkey, read this book' --The Guardian

'Races from the 11th century to the present with irreverent economy'
--Irish Independent
