"This book is a welcome and much needed contribution to the growing field of Internet Studies. Filled with insightful, forward-thinking and well designed essays and studies, it expands our understanding of how online media are shaping and are being shaped by the Turkish socio-cultural context. Sophisticated, up-to-date, and innovative, this is a must read for all those interested in the transformative potential of the net and its platforms." -- Zizi Papacharissi, University of Illinois at Chicago
"Digital Transformations in Turkey convincingly unpacks the illusion of Turkish homogeneity and instead presents the immense complexity and heterogeneity that characterizes this country. This diversity is present in the book itself, with a combination of critical and descriptive chapters, and with attention spent on both subordinated groups in Turkish society, and mainstream political and business actors. Firmly embedded in context, but simultaneously transcendent of national context's confining nature, this book is a fascinating read for those interested in the cultural, social, and political aspects of digital media." -- Nico Carpentier, Uppsala University
"Congratulations to the editor, Banu Akdenizli, and the eclectic contributors of this impressive and timely volume on the role and impact of digital communication technologies, including social media, on the cultural, relational, and political aspects of Turkish society. This book will be of interest to researchers, instructors, and students of cultural studies, mass communication, global studies, and contemporary media." -- Yahya R. Kamalipour, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University
