Everywhere Taksim : Sowing the Seeds for a New Turkey at Gezi (Hardcover)
About this item
In May 2013, a small group of protesters made camp in Istanbul’s Taksim Square, protesting the privatization of what had long been a vibrant public space. When the police responded to the demonstration with brutality, the protests exploded in size and force, quickly becoming a massive statement of opposition to the Turkish regime. This book assembles a collection of field research, data, theoretical analyses, and cross-country comparisons to show the significance of the protests both within Turkey and throughout the world.
