Islamic Political Identity in Turkey (Religion and Global Politics) by M. Hakan Yavuz
Oxford University Press, USA | September 2005 | ISBN: 0195188233 | PDF | 342 pages | 5.4 MB


In this penetrating work, M. Hakan Yavuz seeks to answer a number of questions that shapes Turkey's political climate today, and to provide a comprehensive analysis of Islamic political identity in the country. Yavuz argues that Islamic social movements can be important agents for promoting a democratic and pluralistic society, and that the Turkish example holds long term promise for the rest of the Muslim world. Based on extensive fieldwork and interviews, this work offers a sophisticated new understanding of the role of political Islam in one of the world's most strategically important countries.

On November 4, 1979, Iranian militants stormed the United States Embassy in Tehran and took sixty-six Americans captive.

Using hundreds of recently declassified government documents, historian David Farber takes the first in-depth look at the hostage crisis, examining its lessons for America's contemporary War on Terrorism.
