About this book

Reviews

“This volume is a collection of valuable and comprehensive chapters analyzing the Gezi protests in terms of neo-liberal policies, privatization, authoritarianism, public space, the resistance of bodies against the contemporary regime and its policies, and the social and political outcomes of the protests. Each chapter contains important points and various aspects that concentrate on the protests’ dynamics and processes, even if they are not systematically connected.” (Betül Baki, Southeastern Europe, Vol. 40 (2), 2016)
