Product description


"The New Sultan, besides being an important companion for seasoned Turkey watchers is also a very valuable reference for anyone trying to understand how events since 2007 have given way to the current situation."

--Canadian International Council (04/12/2017)

This is a brave and balanced narrative of Turkey's mercurial President Erdogan. Soner Cagaptay explains how 'the new sultan' built a modern and prosperous Turkey, but how his 'autocratic, illiberal side' undermined these achievements and throttled democracy. Turkey is now at a crossroads, and Cagaptay provides a clear roadmap. Nobody tells Erdogan's story better or more honestly.-- (03/30/2017)

..".the book sketches Erdogan's upbringing in the tough Istanbul district of Kasimpasa. [...] Cagaptay describes how Erdogan started out among nationalist Islamists in student politics. [...] gives a sensitive background context to his life and political upbringing."-- (09/22/2017)

"Cagaptay's prose is tight and the flow of the story is captivating. A newcomer to Turkish politics will learn much."

-- (07/25/2018)

Book Description

The aborted coup in Turkey has fired up interest in a country which will play a critical geopolitical role in the wars of the Middle East.
