Niyazi Berkes, a prominent figure in Turkish political thought, lived through the transitional period in which the Republic of Turkey was founded on the ruins of the Ottoman Empire. Berkes's political and intellectual biography thus affords a unique vantage point from which the author both studies Turkish political thought and examines the interplay between political history and intellectual biography.
