Reviewed by Dirk Jacobs, Université Libre de Bruxelles and KUBrussel
Dirk Jacobs, Professor of Sociology at Université Libre de Bruxelles and KUBrussel, reviews Turkey in Germany: The Transnational Sphere of Deutschkei. The book attempts to improve understanding of Turkish politics by examining Turkish society outside of Turkey, specifically in Germany. Due to Germany’s relative political liberalism, Turkish political ideas can be discussed more freely there than in Turkey itself. The author focuses on how the Alevis, the Kurds, the ultranationalists and the Islamists in Germany have influenced Turkish politics.
