New Edition and Debut Political Book Award Shortlist

new cover bigger

The second edition of Turkish Awakening is now out, with a new chapter covering the dizzying turn of events since the Gezi protests.

A belated mention that it was shortlisted for the 2015 Paddy Power Political Book Awards, in the category of Debut Political Book of the Year: http://www.politicalbookawards.com/#shortlist

I am now working on a second book so will be updating this blog less frequently – it has already long overreached its task of covering the Gezi protests of 2013. However, all eyes should be trained on Turkey as it approaches an extremely important general election on June 7. You can find my articles in Newsweek Europe, the Guardian, Politico Europe and elsewhere.
