Mango is Andrew Mango is a professional historian who has written a book for other professional historians. Hailed as the "definitive biography" of Mustapha Kemal Ataturk, it is marked by the strengths and weaknesses of that genre. Mango's biography of Ataturk would generally satisfy the personality cult even now current in Turkey, and generally fails to expose the subject's more monstrous flaws and actions. But after a perhaps slow start it is a genuinely good and lively read, and highly informative.

Mango wrote his first book named Turkey in 1968 when he was working for the BB. Atatürk: The Biography of the Founder of Modern Turkey (1999).

Mango wrote his first book named Turkey in 1968 when he was working for the BBC. After his retirement from the BBC his productivity increased Mango spent five years working on the biography of Atatürk, using Turkish printed sources though not archival material.

Ataturk was one of the most important men of the 20th century when you consider he created a relatively progressive country with education, women's rights, decent economy and separated religion from politics. He was the military savior of the country during and after World War One, and then instituted reforms which brought a backward decaying Ottoman Empire into the 20th century to become an important country and ally for the west. This book attempts to do so without the hero worship and hagiography found in other works.

  • This is an important book to understand how a Muslim country can modernize under what was essentially a benevolent president for life. Ataturk was one of the most important men of the 20th century when you consider he created a relatively progressive country with education, women's rights, decent economy and separated religion from politics. He was the military savior of the country during and after World War One, and then instituted reforms which brought a backward decaying Ottoman Empire into the 20th century to become an important country and ally for the west. Overlooked both in this book and historically, Ataturks Turkey essentially stopped the spread of Stalins communism into the Middle East. He played off the competing aggressive interests of the West and Russia brilliantly. His political timing was also remarkable as he rose from modest beginnings to military leader and then political leadership against all odds. He is an important leader to understand in today's world. The Middle East could use more like him.

  • Fascinating person, fascinating era. I had no ideas about some of the backgrounds, some of the events between the 2 world wars in Turkey, and by reading this book many things are much clearer in interpreting the region and the hostility between some of the neighbors. But... the book is not even close to some of the excellent writings by Massie, Gilbert, Chernov and McCullough. Read this book, but I do hope someone in the great Pantheon of biographers picks up Ataturk as a subject, he would benefit and it would be a instant classic.

  • I purchased this book in preparation for a trip to Turkey and am now writing from Pamukkale about half way.

    In order to understand modern Turkey, one needs to come to terms with both the myth and reality of Ataturk. This book attempts to do so without the hero worship and hagiography found in other works. I other words, Ataturk is treated like a real man with both strengths and faults.

    The book helped prepare me for my visit to Anıt Kabir - the Ataturk museum and mausoleum in Ankara. It helped me cut through the myth-making and to know the key players and politics before starting the very long, informative, visit.

    I would give the book 5 stars if it included an annotated list of key people (the Turkish names blurred a little as I read) and a time-line.

    As for myself, I have a very old degree in history and am some what critical of poor technique. This book does not suffer from many faults in research, attribution, and style though it is very, very long.

  • Content Summary: This book is sweeping in scope, beginning with the Ottoman period just before World War One, and outlining the major CUP leaders who rebelled against and effectively ended the power of the monarchy. Ataturk would later of course finish that job, abolishing the sultan and caliph positions permanently. Mango focuses mostly on the political and military life of Ataturk, as well as religious and linguistic reforms ushered in. He also comments on Ataturk's social life and personal thoughts and habits. Mango is to be commended for such a comprehensive job, with some summary and comments about the legacy of Ataturk later.

    Analytical Review: This is a big book, but it reads like and even longer book because it is so crammed with details and names. Readers will likely find themselves paging for names and geographical sources, a convenient summary of short biographies appears at the end for assistance. A very enlightening book, which only the patient and interested reader should pick up - but those will find it immensely rewarding.

  • Very in-depth and objective analysis of one of the 20th century's most revered leaders. Names and places can occasionally be confusing to non-Turkish readers, though it isn't a huge turnoff. Interesting to compare with other "famous" autocratic-dictatorial rulers of his time & seeing what puts him apart from them. There is no flowery prose in this book yet the hard facts alone make for a fun read. Definitely worth reading.

  • So many details I didn't know about Turkey's revolutionary period and the Republic that emerged under Attaturk. A good bio and history. Good writing.

  • Incredibly indepth bio of the founder of Republic of Turkey. Ataturk took the remains of the Ottoman Empire and directed a very major paradigm shift in thought, governance and culture. Fascinating that this was done during the time in between the 2 world wars when so many countries were more concerned with conquest than long term growth. He was able to end the Caliphate, create a new alphabet, regain territories lost at the end of WWI and more. The Turkish hero of Gallipoli, this bio is extremely fascinating.

  • The author does a fine job in what is obviously a very thoroughly-researched and well-written work. The main thing I liked about this book is that it didn't just discuss a chronology of Ataturk's career but also looked into the ideas and influences which molded the future leader of the Turkish Republic. A little long at places, the book nevertheless makes sure the context of developments is known to the reader as well as the events themselves. While not destined to be a favorite book of mine I can certainly recommend it as a great work in this field of history.
