Aras, Bultent and Omer Caha. “Fethullah Gulen and His Liberal ‘Turkish Islam’ Movement.” Middle East Review of International Affairs Journal 4.4 (2000). 6 September 2005 <http://www.biu.ac.il/SOC/besa/meria/journal/2000/issue4/jv4n4a4.html>.

Fethullah Gulen has founded a movement that attempts to be modernist, nationalist, Islamic, and democratic all at the same time. The article is a brief survey of Gulen, covering his life and influences, the foundations of the movement, the relationship to the military and Islamic community. The secular elites are covered, but not in any great depth. The authors provide a well reasoned and insightful analysis of the significance of the movement, and conclude that Gulen's role will be an important one as a religious leader in modern Turkey, despite the multiple conflicting interests of his followers.
