Regime Change in Contemporary Turkey

Politics, Rights, Mimesis

Necati Polat

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Covers the main issues in contemporary Turkish politics
  • Places Turkey in the broader milieu of the Arab Spring, especially in terms of Islamist politics and Muslim piety in the public sphere
  • Uses the concept of mimesis to show that continuity is a key element in Turkish politics, despite the series of radical breaks that have occurred
  • Effortlessly blends history, politics, law, social theory and philosophy in making sense of the change
