The Myth of the Military-Nation: Militarism, Gender, and Education in Turkey (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


Altinay examines how the myth that the military is central to Turkey's national identity was created, perpetuated, and acts to shape politics. Tracing how the ideology of militarism is maintained and its implications for ethnic and gender relations, she considers the challenges facing Turkey as it moves from being a plural to a pluralistic society.
