Back in 2008 it was announced that Jonathan Aitken would be writing a biography on Nursultan Nazarbayev, the president of Kazakhstan. Apparently since then it has been published, and according to this article it has also been translated into Turkish. 301 pages in length, the Turkish title is "Kazakistan'ın Efsane Lideri Nazarbayev" (Nazarbayev, the legendary leader of Kazakhstan) and begins with his childhood in the Altay Mountains, eventually getting to a large part about him after being elected as Kazakhstan's first president. The article also says that this is Jonathan Aitken's 12th biography of a political leader.
