When a Turkish minister of culture declares that "the Turkish military is synonymous with Turkish national identity," the embedded assumptions cry out for investigation.

Altinay examines how the myth that the military is central to Turkey's national identity was created, perpetuated, and acts to shape politics. This historical and anthropological investigation probes the genesis of the myth that the Turkish nation is a military nation, traces how the ideology of militarism has been actualized through education and conscription, and reveals the implications for ethnic and gender relations. Altinay sheds light both on the process of how national identities are constructed and on the deep roots of the challenges facing Turkey as it potentially moves from being a plural to a pluralistic society.

    Careful historiographical study of they deliberate construction of Turkey's "every Turk is born a soldier" national ideology to support conscription, a large military establishment, Cyprus, military intervention in the government and the military as a forced melting pot and educational process, although things get interesting when it becomes obvious that Ataturk intended this to include women, spearheading the campaign with his adopted daughter, the first woman combat pilot. How this fell out wh Careful historiographical study of they deliberate construction of Turkey's "every Turk is born a soldier" national ideology to support conscription, a large military establishment, Cyprus, military intervention in the government and the military as a forced melting pot and educational process, although things get interesting when it becomes obvious that Ataturk intended this to include women, spearheading the campaign with his adopted daughter, the first woman combat pilot. How this fell out while the rest stayed and evolved makes for a fascinating study, especially as it gives access to Turkish documents I could otherwise not get into.

    I don't know why I haven't read this book until now. This book is a fairly short but essential read on militarism, nationalism, and gender in Turkey. Also relevant for people interested in Kurdish issues.
