TURKEY by Barbara Ward


Email this review


An addition to The World Today series which fills a niche. The Lengyel Turkey is too long for a ""quickie"" view of a country that is a question mark in today's struggle, and, in addition, proportionately little space is given to modern Turkey. This, no the contrary, is primarily modern Turkey, rooted in history, to be sure, but primarily a product of the last war and the Republic of Ataturk. Barbara Ward writing from first hand knowledge of the country, analyses ably the forces which created modern Turkey, discusses the agricultural, social, political and military developments, and presents a fair basis on which to judge Turkey's apparently equivocal position.
