This collection of essays by Professor Aryeh Shmuelevitz focuses on the changes and continuities in Turkish internal and foreign affairs between the years 1976 and 1982. These years were a major turning point in the political, social and cultural life of the Turkish Republic as the country went through some of its worst economic and political crises, culminating in the 1980 military coup d’état. The coup, along with the involvement of the military in daily life, characterised the era, but Shmuelevitz identifies other major elements, namely the enimity between Turkey’s political leadership and its trade unions, wrangling over the writing of a new constitution, the question of secularism, the rise of political violence and shifts in foreign relations. Addressing the final issue, Shmuelevitz includes an essay dedicated to the development of Turkish-Jordanian relations and Atatürk’s policies towards the Great Powers.
