    One thought on “The New Sultan: Erdogan and the Crisis of Modern Turkey”

    1. Excellent read.Dr. Cagaptay, thank you writing this very informative book. Learned how Erdogan lived, from his schooling to mayor of Istanbul and how he became the president of Turkey. At the beginning US supported him, do understand why. Turkey now not what Ataturk dreamed to be or fought for.

    2. This is a short but meaty read on the rise of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan You see how he benefited from the Islamic trends in the region and Turkey’s system where a party needs 10% to be seated in parliament.His early education was through the Imam Hatip educational system. Ataturk banned these schools but allowed a few to remain for training Islamic clergy. For his last years Erdogan went to a secular high school and university. Imam Hatip graduates, while a small number of Turkey’s population, f [...]

    3. Make Turkey Great Again! Well, I don't know that Erdogan has ever said the exact same words or not, but it is undoubtedly what he is aiming for. Ofcourse, he himself would be the omnipotent leader of this great Turkey, he won't share power with anyone. If you have any doubt, you can ask leftist-liberals, Gulenists (who helped him to undermine secularists and their base in military), Mr. Davutoglu (forme Minister of Foreign Affairs and then Prime Minister) and Kurds. Being the most powerful man d [...]

    4. The New Sultan: Erdogan and the Crisis of Modern Turkey by Soner Çağaptay is a very good primer on modern Turkish political history. Its story begins roughly at the time of current Turkish President Reccep Tayyip Erdogan’s birth in 1954, around when Turkey began its tumultuous emergence as a multiparty democracy after decades of revolutionary one-party rule by the Ottoman generation of Kemalists. It traces Turkey’s political history from its initial democratic struggles against the Kemalis [...]

    5. The author is an alarmist and clearly an anti-Islamists and anti-MB to the point that he sounded at times repulsively biased and lacking in objectivity especially in his description of the Islamization policy in Turkey as ruinous (p 197) and dangerous (p 199). Other than that, the book is very much worth reading and the historical and political analysis are sharp in my opinion.

    6. Same facts, different analysisCagaptay's previous work, Rise of Turkey, has more or less the same set of observations, with a much more positive tone, only a small number of reservations. Looks like Cagaptay, like many other western analysts, left Erdogan, without an open self-crtism or apology. Deserves a comparative read with the earlier work of Cagaptay.

    7. This is a really handy brief recap of 20th century Turkish politics, used to explicate the formative years and political rise of Erdogan--from conservative student to Istanbul mayor to head of state, all the while using Ataturk tactics to produce anti-Ataturk outcomes. Cagaptay is clear-eyed about Turkey's potential futures, especially Erdogan's control of a country that is deeply divided and dependent on continued economic growth to sustain its middle-class transformation.

    8. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is the most important Turkish politician since Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. Over the past two decades Erdoğan has outlasted and outwitted all possible challengers to leave his mark on contemporary Turkey, for better or worse. One could compare him to Richard Nixon, LBJ and Robert Moses, Americans who have been the subjects of multiple well researched and written biographies, and yet he has had a greater impact on the course of his nation than either Nixon or Johnson did, and his [...]

    9. Certainly written for a foreign readership audience in mind, it is a journalistic account of AKP years (facts followed by facts followed by facts) -not much to be objected to, but not also very helpful to grasp underlying dynamics in a scholarly sense.It consists of two parts: an account of Turkish history in general -AKP years in particular + policy analyses, suggestions, predictions for the near future, suited with author's position in the USA (which I'm less interested). Cagaptay seems to be [...]

    10. ‘Erdoğan has become the most powerful leader in the country, and he wants to shape it in his image.’I finished reading this book on the 16th of April, 2017: the day that Recep Tayyip Erdoğan won the Turkish constitutional referendum. The 18 proposed amendments to the Turkish constitution were brought forward by the governing Justice and Development Party (AKP) and the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP). Approval means that the office of the Prime Minister will be abolished and the existing p [...]

    11. I was looking for quite a long time for a book which explains extensively the victorious power take of Erdogan in the last decade. This book is exactly what I needed to understand the roots of his movement as well as his political personality. From his versatility in using Gulen for his own purposes and ending up considering him his enemy no.1, until his more subtle dramatic shaking of the Kemalism, Erdogan is an interesting personality, but that bad kind of interesting. With a clear aim for pow [...]

    12. Buku ini bagus untuk melihat Erdogan dari kaca mata orang luar. Bisa menjadi masukan untuk perbaikan ke depan.

    13. A well written book covering key issues facing US-Turkish relations. I teach a graduate level course on the Ottoman Empire and modern day Turkey, and this book was required reading in the Fall 2017.

    14. Kven er Erdogan? Kva er hans politiske prosjekt? Kvar kjem han frå? Og kva skjer med Tyrkia no? Denne boka svarar godt på fleire av desse spørsmåla. Tilrådast for å forstå Tyrkia betre.
