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.

Religion and Turkish Nationalism: From Conflict to Synthesis

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 provocative book traces how Muslim nationalists blur the line between the secular and the Islamic, supporting globalization and political liberalism, yet remaining mired in authoritarianism, intolerance, and cultural norms hostile to minorities and women. In a new afterword, White analyzes the latest political developments, particularly the mass protests surrounding Gezi Park, their impact on Turkish political culture, and what they mean for the future. It's a reviewer's job both to critique the book at hand and to detail and summarize its most salient points. It's a tribute to Boston University anthropologist Jenny White's excellent Muslim Nationalism and the New Turks that it makes the latter extremely difficult to do, simply by doing justice to the enormous complexity of Turkish society.

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. A comparative historical survey of the rise and fall of successive waves of secularism in the modern era reveals a more complicated and paradoxical picture of trends in Western countries and of the impact of these trends on societies struggling to emulate the economic success of the modern West.

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.


There was an immediate nationalist public backlash against this. The fact that these churches were mostly started by Turkish Muslims who had converted to.
