Tracing the rise of the country that transformed itself in the twentieth century from an agrarian society to an affluent, prominent republic, this new, definitive edition of Turkey Unveiled includes new photos, maps, and key information on Turkey's new-found prominent position in current global affairs, as evidenced by its vital role as a moderate Islamic government during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Experts Nicole and Hugh Pope provide a rich mosaic of contemporary Turkey and its formative past, combining expert analysis with keen understanding of a culture long misunderstood by the West.
