Nationalism has long been a subject of discussion in the literature on development. It has been discussed whether nationalism is indispensable or not on the way to modernity and development. Third World nationalism and revolution from above emerged as key concepts within these discussions. Nationalism was brought forth in many Third World countries as an understanding, which is thought to facilitate paving the way for development, as it imagines a nation based on integrity. The stance that Yön (1961-1967) and Devrim (1969-1971) journal movements had can be thought within this framework. In this study, it will be explored whether we can think of the Yön-Devrim movement by rethinking the link between development and nationalism, especially Third World nationalism. While doing this, comparisons between Yön-Devrim Movement and the Nasserist movement, which had similar political and intellectual tendencies in the same period, will be used.
