Editorial Reviews

Review

'This book is an important contribution to the debate over whether 'Islamist' movements can democratise, join in mainstream politics and govern Muslim states.' Middle East International

Book Description

The Islamist Justice and Development Party swept to power in Turkey in 2002. Since then it has shied away from a hard-line ideological stance in favour of a more conservative and democratic approach. This book asks whether it is possible for a political party with deeply religious ideology to liberalise and entertain democracy?

Format: Paperback
This book explains the social and economic origins of the recent political transformation of turkish politics (from Kemalism to civil/democratic society). The Author argues that neoliberal economic and political openings helped to create Protestant Islam which is friendly towards democracy and market economy. Anyone who want to know when and under what conditions liberal islam is likely to emerge must read this book. His analyses about the evolution of a new political language is very clear and comprehensive. If you want to know what is going on Turkey you need to read this book.

Despite the emotions its subject matter raises in Turkey, its Turkish author remains fair and objective towards all sides, or perhaps I should say equally critical of all sides. His judgments are acute, and his coverage comprehensive. An illuminating read.

Format: Paperback
utter rubbish and waste of time; not conducted rigorously, slapdash, sometimes misleading; I would recommend to those who would like to learn how not to write a scholarly book.

That M. Hakan Yavuz doesn't know how to write intelligently or comprehensibly, so be it.
But that Cambridge University Press has decided to publish his book (as it stands), is a disgrace!
