Turkey: Challenges of Continuity and Change

Synopsis

The authors put issues relevant to Turkey today - such as consolidating democracy, dealing with economic development issues, improving its human rights record and its foreign policy - in an historical context, allowing comparisons with other late developers in the world and reflecting the complexity of Turkish political and socio-economic developments. Turkey also argues that the modernisation process that started in the 19th century, with all its elements including secularisation and Westernisation, has taken root.
