In this major new biography of Mustafa Kemal Atat?rk, and the first to appear in English based on Turkish sources, Andrew Mango strips away the myth, to show the complexities of one of the most visionary, influential, and enigmatic statesmen of the century. Mustafa Kemal Atat?rk was virtually unknown until 1919, when he took the lead in thwarting the victorious Allies'' plan to partition the Turkish core of the Ottoman Empire. He divided the Allies, defeated the last Sultan, and secured the territory of the Turkish national state, becoming the first president of the new republic in 1923, fast creating his own legend.
Andrew Mango''s revealing portrait of Atat?rk throws light on matters of great importance today-resurgent nationalism, religious fundamentalism, and the reality of democracy.

Annotation:
This biography of the Turkish national hero who started the revolt against the Ottoman Empire which brought about the origin of modern Turkey covers his boyhood, his years as a military leader, and his 15-year tenure as president of the Republic of Turkey, which was marked by great change and progress. Ataturk died in 1938.

Praise

New York Review of Books
"[M]ango's work will surely become the standard biography....Moreover, despite Mango's admiration for Ataturk, he has written the most irreverent scholarly biography of him yet to appear." - Christopher de Bellaigue 05/08/2001
