Routledge publishing, Copyright Year 2021, Edited By Edip Asaf Bekaroğlu and Gülsen Kaya Osmanbaşoğlu

“Analyzing Turkey’s electoral geography, this volume evaluates the geographical repercussions of the elections in Turkey since the establishment of the multiparty politics in 1950. The book focuses on the last two decades, examining the interaction between electoral behavior and regional dynamics.

Various issues related to the geographical connotations of Turkish electoral politics are qualitatively and quantitatively addressed by scholars with diverse backgrounds in social sciences. The chapters examine how Turkey’s electoral geography has shaped over the years to correspond with a certain aspect of multiparty politics, such as voting behaviour, political parties and party system, nationalization and regionalization, redistricting, gender issues, identity dynamics, or ideological polarization. This comprehensive work contributes to the theoretical debates in electoral geography in general. Utilizing notions from electoral geography literature this book develops new concepts through the Turkish case.

Filling an important gap in the literature on Turkish politics, this contemporary analysis will be a key resource to policymakers, students and scholars interested in political science, Turkey and the Middle East.”
