Synopsis

Turkey has often looked like an odd appendix to the West: economically backward, inward looking, marred by political violence, yet a staunch NATO ally. But since the momentous changes in the world order of 1989, Turkey has become a major power broker and one of the largest economies in the world, albeit with ethnic and religious conflicts persisting. Kerem Öktem charts the contemporary history of Turkey, exploring such key issues as the relationship between religion and the state, Kurdish identity, Turkeys relationship with Israel and the ongoing controversy over EU membership. Readable but comprehensive, Turkey since 1989 is the definitive book on the countrys erratic transformation from a military dictatorship to a maturing, if still troubled, democracy.
