The Etatist Turkish Republic and Its Political a Socio-Economic Performance from 1980D1999

A Developing State Impacted by International Organizations and Interdependence

Dora Nadolski

By providing the reader with an understanding of the theoretical perspective of interdependence among nations, this book applies the requisites imposed by external organizations to Turkey's internal infrastructures. Discerning how a nation transformed itself from a Muslim state into a republic, is a major contribution to scholarship, in the current context of Turkey's geographical proximity to surrounding Islamic nations. Turkey's compliance with the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development's (OECD) recommendations and regulations required for full European Union (EU) membership are thoroughly examined throughout this study. Professor Nadolski's investigation of these detailed issues significantly contributes to the body of scholarship in the areas of international relations, organizations, and political economy. There are many technical publications on each nation with membership in the OECD; there are many publications about the EU; and there are historical works about Turkey. Until now, there have been no publications focusing on the theoretical perspective of interdependence and international organizations impacting Turkey's institutions. « less more »
