This volume surveys the history of Turkey from the earliest civilizations, to the establishment of the republic in 1923, to the present day. After an introduction to the country's geography, political institutions, economic structure, and cultural characteristics, chapters cover the ancient history of Anatolia and Eastern Thrace, from the Paleolithic age to the Seljuk Turkish victory over Byzantine armies at Manzikert; the Turkish conquest of Anatolia and the imperial rule of the Ottoman sultans; the Young Turk revolution, War of Independence, and early years of the republic; Turkish multi-party democracy up to the military coup of September 12, 1980; the effects of military rule; the Justice and Development Party years; and the Gezi Park protests and Turkish life since then, emphasizing the legacy of Mustafa Kemal Pasha Atatürk, the first president.
