Media in New Turkey : The Origins of an Authoritarian Neoliberal State, Hardback Book

Media in New Turkey : The Origins of an Authoritarian Neoliberal State Hardback

Part of the The Geopolitics of Information series

Description

In Media in New Turkey, Bilge Yesil unlocks the complexities surrounding and penetrating today's Turkish media.

Yesil focuses on a convergence of global and domestic forces that range from the 1980 military coup to globalization's inroads and the recent resurgence of political Islam.

Her analysis foregrounds how these and other forces become intertwined, and she uses Turkey's media to unpack the ever-more-complex relationships. Yesil confronts essential questions regarding: the role of the state and military in building the structures that shaped Turkey's media system; media adaptations to ever-shifting contours of political and economic power; how the far-flung economic interests of media conglomerates leave them vulnerable to state pressure; and the ways Turkey's politicized judiciary criminalizes certain speech. Drawing on local knowledge and a wealth of Turkish sources, Yesil provides an engrossing look at the fault lines carved by authoritarianism, tradition, neoliberal reform, and globalization within Turkey's increasingly far-reaching media.
