Why Turkey is Authoritarian challenges this conventional narrative. Halil Karaveli highlights the danger in viewing events in Turkey as a war between a 'westernising' state and the popular masses defending their culture and religion.

Ultimately, Turkish history is instructive for a left that faces the global challenge of a rising populist right, which succeeds in mobilising culture and identity for its own purpose."--Backcover."@en ;
