Turkish Islam and the Secular State

M. Hakan Yavuz



M. Hakan Yavuz and John L Esposito explore recent reformations of Islam and culture in Turkey and the successful Islamic modernist Fetullah Gülen movement. As one of the most significant religious movements to emerge in Turkey in the past fifty years, the Gülen movement combines a devotion to Islam with a love for modern learning, especially modern science.


This groundbreaking work focuses on and explains the nexus of complex historical and political developments that have contributed to the transformation of Islam in Turkey and on the successful methods that have stretched the movement's sphere of influence into the Balkans and Central Asia.
