New book: Authoritarian Neoliberalism and Resistance in Turkey: Construction, Consolidation, and Contestation, Editors: Borsuk, İ., Dinç, P., Kavak, S., Sayan, P. (Eds.), Palgrave Macmillan

This book offers new clarity on three important political concepts: authoritarianism, neoliberalism, and resistance. While debates on authoritarian resurgence have been limited to the examination of political factors (e.g., polarisation, conflict) until recently, the rising literature on ‘authoritarian neoliberalism’ highlights how the neoliberal restructuring of political economy bolsters the authoritarian tendencies of elected governments both in the Global South and the Global North. This book will be an invaluable resource not only to scholars of Turkey and the Middle East but also to researchers into authoritarianism and neoliberalism around the world.Chapters 2 and 10 are available open access under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License via link.springer.com.
