Ottoman Propaganda and Turkish Identity - Literature in Turkey During World War I [2007]

£60.00

Product description

Published in 2007 by I B Tauris. Includes notes, bibliography and an index.

Discusses the subjects of WWI propaganda, Turkish nationalism and national identity construction. This book concludes that the unfavourable conditions in the Ottoman-Turkish cultural sphere, the literature of the years 1914-1918, was the continuation of a project to build a national culture, inherited from the pre-war years and never
completed.
Throughout World War I the Entente Powers (France, Britain, Russia and later the USA) directed widespread efforts towards the generation of propaganda as a weapon of war, with devastating effect. However, in the underdeveloped and multi-ethnic Ottoman Empire, the Turkish intelligentsia could not produce adequate propaganda to support the war effort. As the war unfolded, writers abandoned their initial attempts at propaganda and turned instead to the task of defining a national identity. In this new reassessment of Turkish literature and propaganda in World War I, Erol Köroglu argues the Ottoman-Turkish intelligentsia used the conditions created by the war to eliminate the deficiencies in national culture and build a Turkish identity, a project inherited from the pre-war years.

Complete with dust jacket. In very good condition throughout. Fresh, crisp and clean with a firm binding. Lightly yellowed pages.
