Ataturk: The Biography of the founder of Modern Turkey

Передняя обложка
Abrams, 26 авг. 2002 г. - Всего страниц: 539
Mustafa Kemal Atatürk was virtually unknown until 1919, when he took the lead in thwarting the victorious Allies' plan to partition the Turkish core of the Ottoman Empire. He divided the Allies, defeated the last Sultan, and secured the territory of the Turkish national state, becoming the first president of the new republic in 1923, fast creating his own legend. Andrew Mango's revealing portrait of Atatürk throws light on matters of great importance today-resurgent nationalism, religious fundamentalism, and the reality of democracy.

Ataturk was truly a leader to be admired for his vision, and for his accomplishments. This book is thoroughly researched and gives a good account of the man and the times he lived in. However, I found the writing style dry and not engaging. Читать весь отзыв
