About the Author

Cihan Tugal is the author of Passive Revolution: Absorbing the Islamic Challenge to Capitalism. He is an associate professor of sociology at the University of California, Berkeley.


"Tugal's book fills a critical gap in analysis on Turkey's current political trajectory." - Claire Sadar, Muftah "A forensic analysis of the AKP-Erdogan phenomenon" - Ece Temelkuran, New Left Review "The idea of the "Turkish model" has roots going back to the start of the Cold War. Plenty of post-mortems have been written for it; no doubt they will continue to be written. The Fall of the Turkish Model by UC Berkeley sociologist Cihan Tugal is the first book-length treatment of the subject. Tugal takes a longer structural view, arguing that 'the successful liberalization in Turkey during the last three decades itself paved the way for Islam's later authoritarian and conservative incarnations.' Tackling the question from the left, he writes that the cause of Turkey's crisis was 'the neoliberal-liberal democratic model (rather than Erdogan the villain - or, for that matter, 'Turkish culture')'." - Harriet "Fills a critical gap in analysis on Turkey's current political trajectory." - Muftah "A well written and well researched book offering an alternative reading of Turkey's claim to Islamic liberalism as a model for other Islamic countries to emulate." - Gorkem Altinors, Progress in Political Economy
