MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a unique collection of essays on political comparative analysis of Israel and Turkey, both represent non-western and non-liberal models of democracy. The editors have brought together interdisciplinary and transatlantic group of experts focusing on the timely discussions of democratic inclusion, conflicts of political identity, and critical social movements. The contributions reveal the contemporary democratic shortcomings and challenges facing both countries. It is a must read for scholars who are interested in comparative politics and state-society relations in the Middle East. -- Goekce Yurdakul, Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin
Comparisons of Turkey and Israel have been far too rare within the scholarly literature. Both nationalisms are ostensibly secular, but defined in large part by religious affiliation. Both states were formed in large part by the dispossession of rival indigenous populations. And, as this rich volume makes clear, both Israel and Turkey have undergone profound transformations in the recent past. Scholarly, well-researched, and innovative, this collection addresses the surprising and revolutionary changes underway in these two strategically important `regional outliers.' -- Howard Eissenstat, St. Lawrence University
