520 |a In October 2005, the European Union officially began accession negotiations with Ankara, making Turkey the first predominantly Muslim country to become a candidate for membership. Turkey is an historic crossroads, poised between Europe and Asia, Islam and Christianity, and is the fulcrum upon which great civilizations have turned. In this authoritative history, Sina Aksin, one of Turkey's most prominent historians, traces the roots of the Turkish Republic to the Ottoman Empire. This book deals with the period before, during, and after World War I , encompassing the fall of the Ottoman Empire and the rise of Ataturk. It closes with three chapters on the 1980s, the 1990s, and the new millennium, concluding with the question of EU accession. It provides a sophisticated Turkish view of the contemporary period. Unlike most histories of modern Turkey available to Western readers, this work offers the unique perspective of a native Turk.
