The first of a two‐part article (Part II to be published in IJPSM, Vol. 5 No. 2) which gives the historical background to the development of modern Turkey with particular reference to the inherited bureaucratic structure of the Ottoman Empire and the reforms undertaken by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder and first president of Turkey. Reviews the attempts made by successive Turkish governments to initiate and implement administrative reform. Discusses the barriers to the achievement of these objectives and draws conclusions as to the relative success or failure of the endeavours.
