Overview

Turkey is a pivotal state whose domestic political, economic, and social developments have important implications for both the United States and Europe. Turkish Dynamics explores the tensions in a liberal democracy with longstanding secular-religious, ethnicity, and social class divisions. Focusing on the process of urbanization and industrialization and resulting social mobilization, Kalaycioglu examines how competition to control the state and its networks of patronage has made politics contentious and fragmented. This is crucial reading on a vital country.
