            1. The phrase ‘five centuries of slavery’ sums up popular Bulgarian perceptions of the Ottoman period. Concerning Ataturk, a mostly adulatory and uncritical biography was published in 1973 with official sanction from the then communist authorities – see Парушев, Парашкев: Мустафа Кемал Ататюрк (София; Издателство на Отечествения фронт, 1973). After the fall of communism the same biography was republished by an academic publishing house with the title ‘Ataturk – the Democrat Dictator’ – see Парушев, Парашкев: Ататюрк - диктаторът демократ (София; АИ “Проф. Марин Дринов”, 2000).
