I will be honest, I haven't finished this book. Yet I think the book fails to deliver its initial promise of new theorizing on Turkish modernization and Westernization. It doesn't provide novel arguments on the Turkish nation-building project other than introducing "Occidentalism" as an operational new concept.

Yet, again it is an interesting case study with an intriguing new data. And the introduction serves as a good literature review of the field.
