Radical Politics in Modern Turkey - XIV
Jacob M. Landau
E. J. Brill
The fact that the active and organized involvement of radical movements in Turkish politics is a recent development renders its investigation difficult. To be meaningful, the terms “Left,” “Right,” and “Islamist” have to relate to specific situations, and against a background of freedom of action. In Turkey, therefore, the main field of study should be the years following the I960 Revolution — the period which is the main concern of this book.
