Product description

From the Publisher

Mehtap Soyler received her doctorate in political science from the Humboldt University Berlin, where she is currently conducting her post-doctoral research. Her research foci are qualitative methods, democratization, civil-military relations, coming to terms with the past, and international politics of the EU.

--This text refers to the hardcover edition.


'A very original project that sheds light on the historical legacy and the nature of the deep state in contemporary Turkey. The author brings her profound theoretical knowledge and methodological expertise to elucidate the origins, the transformation and the particular dimensions of the deep state through time and as it engaged different parts of society. This is an important addition to the the political science literature on the state, authoritarianism and democratization as well as a key contribution to the analysis of the Turkish state.'

Karen Barkey is Professor of Sociology and History, and Director of the Institute for Religion, Culture and Public Life at Columbia University.

'A historically and conceptually profound look into the deep state in Turkey. There is much talk about the deep state, but it is rare to find a scholarly discussion of what it means and what it does not mean.'

Dr. Esra Ozyurek is Chair for Contemporary Turkish Studies at the European Institute, London School of Economics.

'A strong addition to the comparative historical literature on the state. It combines a fascinating account of the development of the Turkish state, with close attention to methods and a clear theoretical argument.'

Gary Goertz is Professor of Political Science at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame. He is the author or co-author of nine books and over

 " is a welcome addition to the literature on the Turkish state...Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate and research collections."
--H. Shambayati, Florida Gulf Coast University, CHOICE

"Overall, she ties together what might initially appear to be a series of unrelated historical moments into a meaningful sequence. In terms of making better sense of the state and its multiple trajectories, The Turkish Deep State offers new avenues to pursue for scholars of Turkey as well as for social scientific studies of the state, military, and democracy alike."

Senem Kaptan Rutgers University, New Perspectives on Turkey

"The Turkish Deep State: State Consolidation, Civil–Military Relations and Democracy, bravely tackles the legendary Turkish “Deep State” and reroutes the direction of the debate toward more measureable premises...In short, the contribution of Söyler’s work on the very controversial and important topic of deep state in Turkey is to guide us to the top of the mountain and point us in a more promising direction..."
