Turkey has leapt to international prominence as an economic and political powerhouse under its elected Muslim government, and is looked on by many as a model for other Muslim countries in the wake of the Arab Spring. In this book, Jenny White reveals how Turkish national identity and the meanings of Islam and secularism have undergone radical changes in today's Turkey, and asks whether the Turkish model should be viewed as a success story or a cautionary tale.

This article analyzes one of the reforms of the Kemalist state which imposed the recitation of the Turkish translation of the call to prayer and banned its original Arabic version between and This reform reflected the nationalist urge to create an Islam unaffected by the Arabic language and Arab cultural traditions. The ban on the call to prayer in Arabic was part of a wider nationalist program which aimed to Turkify all cultural fields including religion and to promote a local vernacular Islam. This intervention was in line with official secularism, because the latter did not mean the total exclusion of Islam from the public sphere, but its control and even its endorsement as long as it remained loyal to the modernist state. The Kemalist regime not only wanted to control religion, but also promoted a national and Sunni Islam rendered compatible with the modern nation-state. In this respect, Kemalists were heirs to the Ottoman Young Turks' instrumentalist and reformist approach to Islam. They adopted their predecessors' dream of a pure, Turkish Islam, which was redefined as a matter of individual conscience vicdan and hence made congruous with the westernization project Davison, ; Parla and Davison,

Religion and Turkish Nationalism: From Conflict to Synthesis

Turkish nationalism developed in different strands in the context of Ottoman decline and was crystallized in opposition to Ottoman institutions and Sunni Islam that it considered responsible for Ottoman underdevelopment. Yet given the extraordinary conditions that led to the demise of the Ottoman Empire, Turkish nationalists concealed their views about Islam. Yet this campaign was not devoid of contradictions. Sunni Islam remained a de facto criterion of Turkishness against non-Muslim communities, even of Turkic descent, as the case of the Gagauz manifests. Following the rise of Kurdish nationalism and socialism, the Evren military regime departed from Kemalist legacy by giving official status to a synthetic approach of Turkish nationalism and Sunni Islam. Islam gradually recovered its position in the public sphere and found its expression in public education and foreign policy vision. Unable to display preview.

Who is a Turk? This book is a study of how the Kemalist regime regarded and treated its minorities. The very large Kurdish minority presented the major problem, but there were also the substantial Jewish and the Christian Greek and Armenian communities, in addition to other mainly Muslim minorities, the Circassians, Albanians, Nusayris, Chechens and Arabs. Also studied are Kemalist attitudes towards, and treatment of, would-be immigrants of various religious and national backgrounds. Having abandoned Ottomanism, and now according primacy to Turkishness as their essential characteristic, the Kemalist rulers were dedicated to creating a Turkish nation. Theirs was the heady nationalism, inspired by the French Revolution, that soared above the constricting social and political structures of the eighteenth century.

Nikki R. Keddie, professor emerita of history at the University of California at Los Angeles, has been a Fellow of the American Academy since She has written on Iranian history, women in the Muslim world, religio-political trends worldwide, and Sayyed Jamal ad-Din al-Afghani. In the quarter century since the Iranian Revolution took much of the world by surprise — not least in the way its religious leadership mobilized a genuinely popular uprising — many commentators in the West have been inclined to see the Middle East and South Asia as cultural backwaters, where religion-based politics are overcoming the secular forms of political organization appropriate to modern industrial societies. But this understanding of recent events is misleading.

Islam, Secularism, and Nationalism in Modern Turkey: Who is a Turk? Bu: Soner Cagaptay

Не может быть, что служба уже закончилась. Это невозможно. Да мы только вошли. Но, увидев прислужника в конце ряда и два людских потока, движущихся по центральному проходу к алтарю, Беккер понял, что происходит.

Она вглядывалась в глаза Танкадо - и видела в них раскаяние. Он не хотел, чтобы это зашло так далеко, - говорила она.  - Он хотел нас спасти. Но снова и снова он протягивал руку, так, чтобы люди обратили внимание на кольцо. Он хотел объяснить им, но не .

Беккер прекрасно помнил все, что произошло, и опустил глаза, думая увидеть перед собой своего убийцу. Но того человека в очках нигде не. Были другие люди. Празднично одетые испанцы выходили из дверей и ворот на улицу, оживленно разговаривая и смеясь. Халохот, спустившись вниз по улочке, смачно выругался.

С каждым завыванием сирены слова Хейла эхом отдавались в ее мозгу: Я сожалею о Дэвиде Беккере. Сьюзан казалось, что она сходит с ума. Она уже готова была выскочить из комнаты, когда Стратмор наконец повернул рубильник и вырубил электропитание. В одно мгновение в шифровалке установилась полная тишина. Сирены захлебнулись, мониторы Третьего узла погасли. Тело Грега Хейла растворилось в темноте, и Сьюзан, инстинктивно поджав ноги, прикрылась пиджаком Стратмора.

Господи Иисусе, - подумал.  - Наркотики внутривенно. Кто бы мог подумать. - Проваливай! - крикнула.  - Вон.

Сьюзан это показалось разумным. Цифровая крепость впервые запустила функцию переменного открытого текста; быть может, ТРАНСТЕКСТ сумеет взломать шифр за двадцать четыре часа. Но честно говоря, она в это уже почти не верила. - Пусть ТРАНСТЕКСТ работает, - принял решение Стратмор.  - Я хочу быть абсолютно уверен, что это абсолютно стойкий шифр. Чатрукьян продолжал колотить по стеклу. - Ничего не поделаешь, - вздохнул Стратмор.

В тусклом свете мониторов Сьюзан увидела, что это, и побледнела. Он достал пистолет. Он выдвинул два стула на середину комнаты. Сел. Поднял посверкивающую полуавтоматическую беретту и нацелил ее на дверь, а потом опустил себе на колени.

 Вы заплатили ему десять тысяч долларов? - Она повысила голос.  - Это грязный трюк. - Трюк? - Теперь уже Стратмор не мог скрыть свое раздражение.  - Это вовсе не трюк. Да я вообще слова ему не сказал о деньгах.
