Product description


Mango's book is a masterful overview of this period in Turkey's history (Sunday Times)

To his credit, modern Turkey's great champion never acts as its apologist ... He is also impressively up to date ... authoritative and illuminating (Sunday Times)

A swift, potted history of the Turkish political roller coaster. (Financial Times)

Andrew Mango gives excellent descriptions of [Ankara and Istanbul] ... he sees Turkey as a success story ... he writes with elegance and conciseness ... The result, at last, is a book that people on their way to Turkey can pick up and read on the plane ... [Turkey's] recent past deserves a proper, sympathetic examination, and a proper, well-informed book to make this possible. It has, at least, got one. (Literary Review)

Andrew Mango knows Turkey well. (The Spectator)

Andrew Mango's portrait of contemporary Turkey is probably the most successful general introduction to the country for several decades. (The Tablet)

He paints a broad and accessible picture, shrewdly gleaned from his insider-outsider dual perspective ... The Turks Today unfolds as a balanced, coherent primer for serious travellers with an itch to read the hidden lie of the land, and for inquisitive general readers. (Scotland on Sunday)

Book Description

From the acclaimed biographer of Atatürk, a portrait of the Turkish people and their vibrant society today make this the authoritative work on modern Turkey.
