9781780764399: The Emergence of Social Democracy in Turkey: The Left and the Transformation of the Republican People's Party (Library of Modern Turkey)

The RPP (Republican People's Party) stands as Turkey's main opposition party – one of two major political blocs, second only to Erdogan's ruling AK Party. Also known as the CHP (Cumhuriyet Halk Partisi), it was the founding party of Atatürk's republican regime and had a history of hostility towards leftist parties. Despite this, by the mid-1960s, the RPP had re-orientated itself as left of centre, as the growing influence of the left inside the RPP pushed it in a new direction. This is hailed as the entry point of social democratic politics into Turkey, and is the focus of Yunus Emre's impressively researched book. He tracks the fluctuations in Turkish politics from the single-party period to the making of a new regime following the 1960 coup, looking at the place of both the RPP and the left in this trajectory, making this essential reading for scholars of Turkish politics and modern history.

About the Author:

Yunus Emre is a Graduate Assistant in the Department of International Relations at Istanbul Kültür University, Turkey. He holds a PhD from the Atatürk Institute of Modern Turkish History, Bogaziçi Univeristy, Turkey.

Review:

'Yunus Emre manages to render a complex history comprehensible and sheds light on the remarkable political career of [former RRP leader and Turkish Prime Minister] Bulent Ecevit ... Emre's work is an important contribution to a hitherto neglected aspect of Turkey's politics and also to the history of a period of political modernisation, before ideological polarisation made such positions of compromise difficult to imagine. It is the product of careful research of primary sources and publications of the period. It will be a worthwhile addition to the small library of original research on Turkish political development.' Professor Caglar Keyder, The Ataturk Institute for Modern Turkish History, Bogazici Univeristy ' [This book] will bridge a gap in the literature, both in Turkish and English ... it will serve those working on social democracy, as well as social and political change in general.' Professor Mensur Akgun, Director of the Global Trends Center, Istanbul, Kultur University.

Book Description I.B.Tauris Co. Ltd., United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Republican People s Party (RPP), also know as the CHP (Cumhuriyet Halk Partisi), stands as the main opposition party - one of two major political currents, second only to the Erdooan s AK Party. Established as the founding party of Ataturk s republican regime, the RPP has a history of hostility of leftist parties. Despite this, by the mid-1960s, the RPP had re-orientated itself as left of centre, as the growing influence of the left inside the RPP pushed it in a new direction. This is hailed as the entry point of social democratic politics into Turkey, and is the focus of Yunus Emre s impressively researched book. Through extensive primary research, Emre tracks the fluctuations in Turkish politics from the single-party period to the making of a new regime following the 1960 coup, looking at the place of both the RPP and the left in this trajectory. The RPP s internal struggles in this period, in particular around the working class movement and the legal right to strike, debates over anti-imperialism and land reform, and the role of the military in politics provide the political context into which a new social democratic agenda emerged. Engaging with the body of literature on social democratic movements, Emre analyses the reasons for the delayed emergence of social democracy in Turkey. He argues that the absence of European style social democratic formations in Turkey can be traced back to the developments around the adoption of a left of centre position by the RPP. From the 1960s to the present, the RPP has oscillated between a social democratic position and its Kemalist roots in the early republican single-party regime - this book analyses the fundamental point of change in this process. It is essential reading for scholars of Turkish politics and modern history, providing insight into the development of Turkey s founding political party, the left and social democratic movements.
