The Ottoman centuries : the rise and fall of the Turkish empire by Patrick Balfour Kinross ( Book )
19 editions published between 1977 and 2002 in English and held by 1,760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Ottoman Empire began in 1300 under the almost legendary Osman I, reached its apogee in the sixteenth century under Suleiman the Magnificent, whose forces threatened the gates of Vienna, and gradually diminished thereafter until Mehmed VI was sent into exile by Mustafa Kemal (Ataturk). In this definitive history of the Ottoman Empire the writer never loses sight of the larger issues, economic, political, and social. At the same time he delineates his character with obvious zest, displaying them in all their extravagance, audacity and, sometimes, ruthlessness

6 editions published between 1972 and 1978 in English and held by 1,712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ataturk : a biography of Mustafa Kemal father of modern Turkey by Patrick Balfour Kinross ( Book )
12 editions published between 1964 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Back Cover: Here is Lord Kinross's definitive and masterful biography of Mustafa Kemal (Ataturk, or literally "Father Turk"), a man whom Winston Churchill and Arnold Toynbee hailed as one of the truly great figures of the twentieth century. Ataturk's foreign policy was unique among the dictators of his age in that it was based not on expansion but retraction of frontiers; he ultimately succeeded in transforming the old sprawling Ottoman Empire into a compact, new Turkish republic. Many years of research, perennial visits to Turkey, and access to the documents in the Presidential Archives in Ankara and to surviving colleagues of the Turkish leader combine here with the gifts of an eloquent writer to provide a vivid and readable portrait of the man who made feudal Turkey into a modern republic

Ataturk, the rebirth of a nation by Patrick Balfour Kinross ( Book )
43 editions published between 1964 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Atatürk has been labeled the Unknown Titan of the Twentieth Century, one who is equal to Churchill, de Gaulle, Roosevelt and Truman. His achievement in creating a new, modern, forward-looking nation on the ruins of a corruption and strife-ridden empire that had finally collapsed after centuries of decline is unprecedented. Like many great soldiers turned politicians, he never lost sight of the fact that yesterday's enemy must be tomorrow's friend if the mistakes of the past are not to be perpetuated. This biography details the aspects of Atatürk's life and character, and can serve as an introduction for Westerners who want to understand modern Turkey and its people
