Understanding both Fethullah Gülen, a moderate Turkish Muslim scholar, and the Gülen Movement, a global network of volunteers, teachers, students, intellectuals and business people who are inspired by Gülen's philosophy based on dialog and peaceful coexistence, is vital to making any sort of predictions about the direction that Turkey might be headed in the next years. Who is Fethullah Gülen? What is Gülen's world view and what are his fundamental ideas about society and the state? How does Gülen view history and what does he consider the most important events? What are the basic principles of the Gülen Movement? These questions and more are posed and answered in detail in this book.
