When Mustafa Kemal Ataturk became the first president of Turkey in 1923, he set
about transforming his country into a secular republic where nationalism
sanctified by science–and by the personality cult Ataturk created around
himself–would reign supreme as the new religion. This book provides the first
in-depth look at the intellectual life of the Turkish Republic’s founder. In
doing so, it frames him within the historical context of the turbulent age in
which he lived, and explores the uneasy transition from the late Ottoman
imperial order to the modern Turkish state through his life and
Shedding light on one of the most complex and enigmatic
statesmen of the modern era, M. Sukru Hanioglu takes readers from Ataturk’s
youth as a Muslim boy in the volatile ethnic cauldron of Macedonia, to his
education in nonreligious and military schools, to his embrace of Turkish
nationalism and the modernizing Young Turks movement. Who was this figure who
sought glory as an ambitious young officer in World War I, defied the victorious
Allies intent on partitioning the Turkish heartland, and defeated the last
sultan? Hanioglu charts Ataturk intellectual and ideological development at
every stage of his life, demonstrating how he was profoundly influenced by the
new ideas that were circulating in the sprawling Ottoman realm. He shows how
Ataturk drew on a unique mix of scientism, materialism, social Darwinism,
positivism, and other theories to fashion a grand utopian framework on which to
build his new nation.
