Formation of the Turkish Nation-State, 1920-1938 is a sociological examination of the formulation and institutionalization of Turkish nationhood during the early Republic. Yeşim Bayar explores the process through which the political elite formulated the main constitutive elements of Turkish nationhood, as well as the underlying reasons for this formulation. Focusing on the domains of education, language, and citizenship, the study offers insights into how the Republican elite situated different ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups within the nation.

Yeşim Bayar teaches Sociology at Concordia University, Canada, and is a Visiting Scholar in the Department of Sociology at McGill University, Canada. She received PhD in Sociology from McGill University and her MSc in Development Studies from the London School of Economics and Political Science, UK.
