Book Project: History of the Republic of Turkey

Prof. Dr. Raoul Motika in collaboration with Prof. Dr. Christoph Herzog (Universität Bamberg)

The proposed book, which will appear with Kohlhammer Verlag, provides an overview of the history of the Republic based on individual research findings and recent research. It aims to show continuities and disruptions, to discuss fundamental concerns such as ethnicity and nationalism, and to address economic and cultural-historical developments. A work will thus be presented that clearly differs from histories of Turkey that emphasize historical events.
