The Atatürk Society of America adds a publication to the vast literature on Atatürk. The book, “Atatürk’s Thought”: A political Theory of Progress and Peace, authored by the Society’s former president Metin Camcigil has been launched on the occasion of the annual Atatürk commemoration day event of November 10, 2020.
The book, unlike most publications regarding of all things Atatürk, studies his thought system as going beyond the circumstances of its time to constitute a political science theory for good state governance. The author’s view is that Atatürk’s thought system may be summarized as being governance with rationality, dynamism to conform to social changes, recognition of a high status for women in society, and an education policy that embraces progress and peace for the entire humanity. It is the author’s and the Atatürk Society of America’s hope that this publication will initiate a well-deserved but long missing discourse in political science.
The book is available for purchase at $12 plus shipping. For more information on how to order, please click the “Buy Now” button on left.
