This provocative e-book strains how Muslim nationalists blur the road among the secular and the Islamic, assisting globalization and political liberalism, but last mired in authoritarianism, intolerance, and cultural norms adversarial to minorities and women.

In a brand new afterword, White analyzes the newest political advancements, rather the mass protests surrounding Gezi Park, their influence on Turkish political tradition, and what they suggest for the future.
