An essential analysis of Turkey's unique blend of military and civilian authoritarianism

In Turkey: The Pendulum between Military Rule and Civilian Authoritarianism, Fatįh Çağatay Cengįz explains Turkey's trajectory of military and civilian authoritarianism while offering an alternative framework for understanding the Kemalist state and state-society relations. This book clearly captures the zeitgeist of the moment Turkey has passed/has been passing through: democratisation, authoritarianism, and the coup cycle. Moreover, the book not only focuses on Turkish domestic politics with regards to procedural democratisation and waves of authoritarianism under the Justice and Development Party ( Adalet ve Kalkınma Partisi, AKP), it also engages with Turkey's recent foreign policy; policy that pushes Turkey to take an active role in the Syrian conflict through the concept of 'Neo-Ottomanism.'
