Summary
Kerem Öktem charts the contemporary history of Turkey, exploring such key issues as the relationship between religion and the state, Kurdish identity, Turkey's relationship with Israel and the ongoing controversy over EU membership. Readable but comprehensive, Turkey since 1989 is the definitive book on the country's erratic transformation from a military dictatorship to a maturing, if still troubled, democracy
