Alpaslan Ozerdem, Matthew Whiting

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The Routledge Handbook of Turkish Politics pulls together contributions from many of the world's leading scholars on different aspects of Turkey. Turkey today is going through possibly the most turbulent period in its history, with major consequences both nationally and internationally. The country looks dramatically different from the Republic founded by Atatürk in 1923. The pace of change has been rapid and fundamental, with core interlinked changes in ruling institutions, political culture, political economy, and society. Divided into six main parts, this Handbook provides a single-source overview of Turkish politics: Part I: History and the making of Contemporary Turkey. Part II: Politics and Institutions. Part III: The Economy, Environment and Development. Part IV: The Kurdish Insurgency and Security. Part V: State, Society and Rights. Part VI: External Relations. This comprehensive Handbook is an essential resource for students of Politics, International Relations, International/Security Studies with an interest on contemporary Turkey.
