Political Philosophies


Garrett W. Sheldon

This book is a comparative study of the political theories of Thomas Jefferson, one of the founders of the United States of America, and Kemal Atatürk, the founder of modern Turkey. Similarities are found in their imperial settings, wars of national independence, establishment of republics, freedom of religion, public education, and economics. The impact of these two great political thinkers on the West and the Middle East is detailed.
