I.B.Tauris & The British Institute at Ankara (BIAA)

As our understanding of modern Turkish history continues to evolve, and as the Middle East continues to change, a new generation of scholars are exploring questions of identities, class, politics, diplomacy and religion. The British Institute at Ankara (BIAA) is internationally renowned for its support of new independent academic research in the region across various fields, including archaeology, ancient and modern history, heritage management, social sciences and contemporary issues in public policy, and political sciences.  I.B.Tauris will now publish work in conjunction with the BIAA as part of its prestigious modern Turkey list in two new monograph book series, Contemporary Turkey and The Ottoman Empire and the World. This collaborative collection of specially commissioned books will focus on the identity, history and politics of late Ottoman, republican and modern Turkey. Authors and contributors will combine academic rigour and scholarship with extensive first-hand experience in the region.

As an international publisher I.B.Tauris is well placed to support the growing movement toward international and transnational perspectives in the field, and to produce high-standard scholarly monographs which reflect our original and independent approach to the social sciences.

The series will:

  • Reassess the historical and economic legacy of the region’s history.
  • Reconsider late Ottoman and modern Turkish history and politics in an international context.
  • Provide an outlet for new work in the field from emerging scholars.
  • Promote the work of academics with practical experience in the region.
  • Support the fellowship programme of the BIAA.
  • Encourage a forward-thinking and multi-disciplinary approach to modern Turkish history.


Each title will be published as a hardback and, simultaneously, as a student-friendly Kindle edition.
