Ottoman Turkey, Atatürk, and Muslim South Asia: Perspectives, Perceptions and Responses


Özcan, Azmi, International Journal of Turkish Studies


M. NAEEM QURESHI, Ottoman Turkey, Atatürk, and Muslim South Asia: Perspectives, Perceptions and Responses (Karachi: Oxford University Press, 2014). Pp. 416. £ 29.99 cloth.
