In Media in New Turkey, Bilge Yesil unlocks the complexities surrounding and penetrating today's Turkish media. Yesil focuses on a convergence of global and domestic forces that range from the 1980 military coup to globalization's inroads and the recent resurgence of political Islam. Her analysis foregrounds how these and other forces become intertwined, and she uses Turkey's media to unpack the ever-more-complex relationships. Yesil confronts essential questions regarding: the role of the state and military in building the structures that shaped Turkey's media system; media adaptations to ever-shifting contours of political and economic power; how the far-flung economic interests of media conglomerates leave them vulnerable to state pressure; and the ways Turkey's politicized judiciary criminalizes certain speech. Drawing on local knowledge and a wealth of Turkish sources, Yesil provides an engrossing look at the fault lines carved by authoritarianism, tradition, neoliberal reform, and globalization within Turkey's increasingly far-reaching media.

This book addresses the conflicts, myths, and memories that grew out of the Great War in Ottoman Turkey, and their legacies in society and politics. It is the third volume in a series dedicated to the combined analysis of the Ottoman Great War and the Armenian Genocide. In Australia and New Zealand, and even more in the post-Ottoman Middle East, the memory of the First World War still has an immediacy that it has long lost in Europe. For the post-Ottoman regions, the first of the two World Wars, which ended Ottoman rule, was the formative experience. This volume analyses this complex configuration: why these entanglements became possible; how shared or even contradictory memories have been constructed over the past hundred years, and how differing historiographies have developed. Remembering the Great War in the Middle East reaches towards a new conceptualization of the “long last Ottoman decade” (1912-22), one that places this era and its actors more firmly at the center, instead of on the periphery, of a history of a Greater Europe, a history comprising – as contemporary maps did – Europe, Russia, and the Ottoman world.

A timely and incisive examination of contemporary urban unrest that explains why riots will continue until citizens are equally treated and politically included In the past few decades, urban riots have erupted in democracies across the world. While high profile politicians often react by condemning protestors’ actions and passing crackdown measures, urban studies professor Mustafa Dikeç shows how these revolts are in fact rooted in exclusions and genuine grievances which our democracies are failing to address. In this eye-opening study, he argues that global revolts may be sparked by a particular police or government action but nonetheless are expressions of much longer and deep seated rage accumulated through hardship and injustices that have become routine. Increasingly recognized as an expert on urban unrest, Dikeç examines urban revolts in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Sweden, Greece, and Turkey and, in a sweeping and engaging account, makes it clear that change is only possible if we address the failures of democratic systems and rethink the established practices of policing and political decision-making.

Winner of a 2014 Distinguished Book Award from The Society of Military History and Shortlisted for the 2014 Longman-History Today Book Prize Mustafa Kemal - latterly and better known as Ataturk - is without doubt the most famous figure in modern Turkish history. But what was his path to power? And how did his early career as a soldier in the Ottoman army affect his later decisions as President? The Young Ataturk tracks the lesser covered period of Kemal's life - from the War of Independence to the founding of the Republic. George W. Gawrych shows that it is only by understanding Kemal's military career that one can fully comprehend how he evolved as one of the twentieth century's most extraordinary statesmen. Gawrych also contributes to the understanding of Kemal by presenting a systematic and critical analysis of his military writings, orders, actions, and letters as well as his political decisions, speeches, proclamations, and private correspondences. Soldiering helped shape Kemal's critical reasoning, personal values and emotional intelligence. His experiences as an officer and commander forced him to adjust theories to practices in order to solve problems and make decisions. But Kemal was a natural political leader and his broad intellectual interests and personal studies helped prepare him for political leadership. Gawrych demonstrates that in the last year of the War of Independence Kemal excelled as both Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and President of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. Gawrych incorporates previously-unstudied Ottoman archival documents and is the first Western scholar to conduct extensive research on Kemal in the military archives of the Turkish General Staff. This book is essential reading for those seeking to understand the establishment of the Republic of Turkey and the part that Kemal played in that process.

“DENEYİM BAŞIMIZA GELENLER DEĞİL, ONLARLA NE YAPTIĞIMIZDIR. BU DA BİZİM TEK VE BENZERİ OLMAYAN BİLGELİĞİMİZDİR.” - ALDOUS HUXLEY • Okumak mı entelektüel bir faaliyettir yoksa yazmak mı? • Yazma eyleminin ne kadarı sanattır, ne kadarı zanaatkârlık? • Klasik eserler neden okunmalı ve aslında neden okunmamalı? • İyi ve nitelikli okur olmak öğrenilebilir mi? • Okumak ve yazmak bir usta-çırak ilişkisi içinde nasıl gelişir? • Sanat ve edebiyat, tüketime dayalı ticari metalar mıdır? • Yaratıcı yazarlık atölyeleri ve yazma sanatı üzerine kaleme alınmış kitaplar gerçekten işe yarar mı? Hayatının büyük bir kısmını kitap dünyasının içinde geçiren Ertürk Akşun, yazma ve okuma üzerine pratik bilgiler verdiği bu kitapta kendi okuma deneyimlerini, süreç içinde yaptığı hataları da itiraf ederek kaleme alıyor. İyi ve nitelikli okur olmak üzerine tartışmak, araştırmak ve düşünmek isteyen herkes için eşsiz bir yol gösterici sayılabilecek olan bu kitapla, okuyuculukta nitelik edinmek adına yapılması gerekenler konusundaki yerleşik algıyı kırmak için de bir tartışma başlatıyor cesaretle. Kendi okuma deneyimlerinden yola çıkarak aktardığı görüşlerinde üzerinde fikir birliğine varılamamış birçok konuya başka bir yerden bakmamıza olanak sağlıyor. Okur, yazar ve yayın yönetmeni olarak edindiği birikimle doğru bilinen yanlışları daha net görebilmemiz için farklı bir pencere açıyor.

Through an ethnographic study of state museums in Turkey, this book explores the negotiation processes of exhibiting the competing pasts and binaries of “Turkishness”. The study focuses on Anıtkabir and Topkapı Palace Museum as two important state museums that represent the Republican and Ottoman pasts of Turkey. Tracing their contested exhibition making processes, it argues that binaries of “Turkishness” are not irreconcilable; rather they are deliberated, negotiated, and transformed in the everyday practices of museum bureaucracies.
