'Turbulent politics are not new to Turkey. As Simon Waldman and Emre Caliskan remind us in "The New Turkey and its Discontents", the Turkish republic ... has experienced coups, conspiracies, a long Kurdish counterinsurgency and a succession of leaders who have tried to mould the country in their image.' * The Financial Times *
'The book is particularly deft on the "Turkish-Islamic Synthesis," pursued by the military authorities after 1980 in an attempt to unite the violently divided country under a conservative nationalist tent. ... As a diagnosis of how Turkey got to where it is today, The New Turkey and its Discontents is probably the best volume in English out there. * Hurriyet Daily News *
'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. Waldman and Caliskan engage the reader in the language, background, and explanations needed to grasp the political tests of Turkey's democracy.' * Lenore Martin, Professor of Political Science at Emmanuel College and Associate of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, Harvard University *
