TURKEY UNVEILED: A History of Modern Turkey
by Nicole and Hugh Pope (1998)
Turkey defies easy categorization: European? Western? Islamic? Anarchic? Friends speak of the Turks as blunt yet hospitable, inhabiting a land rich in history and culture, a strategic ally of more western nations. Detractors cite Midnight Express, military coups, Islamic Fundamentalism. the Turks themselves with characteristic indifference simply say: "All is Turkey." In this account Hugh and Nicole Pope attempt to fill a gap in perception.
