Turkey is changing. Day by day and moment by moment, the Turkey that we thought we knew is disappearing and a new one is taking its place. Dogu Ergil presents a complex mosaic of essays covering every corner of Turkish politics and society. From the Kurdish issue to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, to the intrigues of the ruling AK Party and the opposition parties Ergil leaves no stone unturned.
“The Unknown: the Realities of Turkey” takes the reader day by day through the clamor of modern Turkish politics and brings order and clarity to a seemingly chaotic scene. Doğu Ergil’s tutelage is an indespensible resource for any and all explorers of foreign affairs. Turkey sometimes seems to be a part of every circle, and other times seems to live in a world all of its own.
