Summary
"This book provides a study of the socio-political and cultural climate in Turkey in the aftermath of the Cold War, which resulted in a major voter re-alignment in the Turkish political system in the mid - 1990s. Except for a brief period of coalition governments, the country came under the rule of the Justice and Development Party (AKP), a conservative political party, which has been a coalition of pious Sunnis , liberals, Kurdish nationalists, former socialists, led by leaders from immaculate political Islamist backgrounds. Concomitantly, Turkish society has begun to experience increasing religiosity, authoritarianism, spreading lack of interpersonal trust and tolerance, increasing xenophobia, and anomie.
