Belief that religious authorities will lose importance as the countries move toward democracy. Iran and Turkey-Centers of Safavid Whole ethos of being a multicultural society goes out the window, evidence on homogeneity Turkey has about 13 million (there were 23 million in the Ottoman empire before) Egypt, Turkey, Iran, and the North Arabs all have between 10 and 15 million people Iran and Turkey produce strong leaders with big reforms. Sovereignty important to them. Ataturk-single mindedness with which he fought off all other factions to create the Turkish state Turkey and Iran buy into the rhetoric of the West.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
