Religion, Society, and Modernity in Turkey

 
 
Serif Mardin

Cloth $60.00s    |    0-8156-2810-2    |    2006


A selection of the finest essays by S¸erif Mardin, offering a historical and cultural analysis of the late Ottoman period and Republican Turkey.

Description
This book collects Serif Mardin’s seminal essays written throughout the span of his prolific career. Comprising some of the author’s finest and most incisive writings, these essays deal with the historical background, political travails, and socioeconomic metamorphosis of Turkey during a century of modernization.

With his characteristic sophistication and breadth of vision, Mardin provides readers with a remarkably objective analysis of ideology, civil society, religion, urban life, and violence in late Ottoman and Republican Turkey.

Mardin moves easily from sociological topics on violence and class-consciousness to the history of the Ottoman Empire, and the philosophy and culture of modern Turkey within the greater Middle East. These influential pieces—collected for the first time in one volume—represent an invaluable addition to the field of Middle East studies.
