Why Turkey is Authoritarian
RIGHT-WING RULE FROM ATATÜRK TO ERDOGAN
Distributed in the USA by the University of Chicago Press
This book presents a clear analysis and explanation, showing how cultural prejudices about the Muslim world have informed ideological positions in a way that has ultimately disabled the left within Turkey, leaving it unable to transcend artificial cultural categories and promote broad democratic solidarity. As the populist right mounts challenges around the world, the history of “democracy” in Turkey offers instructive lessons for activists there and beyond.
