Review quote

This lucid, illuminating, incisive, well-researched, multi-authored book offers a remarkably comprehensive set of overviews and evaluations of the profound political and contextual changes that have taken place in Turkey since the 1980s, and of the resultant 'paradigm shifts' and 'axis shifts' in Turkey's foreign and security policies and thinking during this period... It deserves to be widely read by students of, and commentators on, contemporary Turkey. -- Robert Bideleux, Swansea Universityshow more
