“Elites and Religion” offers not isolated snapshots of the Turkey, but its total arc across nearly nine decades of development and sophstication. With careful deliberation over records not available to Western historians, Karpat looks in detail at the way that religion has been used, misused and downright abused by the elite circles of power in the Turkish Republic.
