This paper presents a state of the art about a fundamental issue between the Western
and Eastern world: the modernity as an identity element in Turkey. Consequently, four

of the empire, birth of the republic, military power and alignment with the Western
world during the Cold War. This review contains key references in the deconstruction

and reveals possibilities of change in Middle Eastern nations. The methodology was
based on an extensive review of secondary sources according to each developed section,
and included international databases, libraries and national bookstores. The latter
implied the purchase of certain books to account references about Turkey
