I will be launching my new book The New Turkey and its Discontents (written with Emre Caliskan) on
Thursday 17 November, 6-8pm in K2.29 (Council Room), Strand Campus, King’s College London.
Everyone is welcome to attend
The book has received the following praise:
"This is a wonderful portrayal of the Turkey that has emerged under Erdogan and his party. It is an elaborate account of the weakening prospects for democracy and can be read as an illuminating prelude to the possibility of total regime change, which may yet be upon us."
- Nuray Mert, columnist for Hurriyet Daily News and lecturer in Economics at Istanbul University
"This highly topical book provides an important guide to understanding Turkey’s democratic challenges today — the media, the role of the military, civil society, human rights, domestic and class politics, and more. In a very accessible manner it highlights the major issues, relationships, and events key to understanding this complex state."
- Lenore Martin, Professor of Political Science at Emmanuel College and Associate of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, Harvard University
