Professor Authors Fourth Book On Modern Middle Eastern History

By MC2 Michael Ehrlich
NPS Department of National Security Affairs Associate Professor Ryan Gingeras recently released his latest book, a biographical effort entitled "Mustafa Kemal Ataturk: Heir to an Empire." The work chronicles modern Turkish Republic founder Ataturk, and is already Gingeras' fourth book covering contemporary Middle Eastern history.
"'Heir to the Empire' tells the story of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founding president of the Republic of Turkey," said Gingeras. "His ideas, policies and life story continues to shape how contemporary Turks view the country's politics, culture and national identity."
Gingeras, who currently serves as Chair of NSA's Doctoral Committee, believes an NPS education yields unexpected results for the university's students.
"Studying at NPS allows career officers the opportunity to engage in an education specifically tailored to their professional needs and interests," said Gingeras. "Moreover, it does so while bringing together a great host of bright, promising individuals from the United States and all corners of the world. An experience that in it of itself is as valuable as anything learned in the classroom."
