This chapter identifies and explains the components and origins of Turkey’s struggles by charting the decline of the military in political affairs and the rise of the AKP. It dissects the problems associated with Turkey’s press and the lack of media freedom, and it evaluates Turkish foreign policy as well as the Kurdish question. It also examines the unstable nature of Turkey’s democracy and its political system. The introduction explains why and how authors view Turkey through the eyes of weak state, explores some of the terminology that is used or rejected and also summarizes the chapters of the book.

Keywords:   Weak state, Deep state, Parallel structure, Post-military politics, July 2016 coup
