Turkey, at the very intersection between Europe and the Middle East, comprises a plethora of ethnicities and minority groups.

The Young Turks in Opposition (Studies in Middle Eastern History)

The Young Turks in Opposition (Studies in Middle Eastern History) by M. Sukru Hanioglu
Oxford University Press, USA | March 1995 | ISBN: 0195091159 | 408 pages | PDF | 22.8 MB

In 1908, the revolution of the Young Turks deposed the dictatorship of Sultan Abdulhamid II and established a constitutional regime that became the major ruling power in the Ottoman empire. But the seeds of this revolution went back much farther: to 1889, when the secret Young Turk organization the Committee of Union and Progress was formed. M. Sukru Hanioglu's landmark work is the story of the power struggles within the CUP and its impact on twentieth-century Turkish politics and culture. An in-depth history of an ideological movement as well as a study of the diplomatic relationships between the Ottoman Empire and the so-called great powers of Europe at the turn of the century, it analyzes the influence of European political thought on the CUP conspirators, and traces their influence on generations of Turkish intellectual and political life.
