"Turkey's growing international profile, candidacy for the European Union, and persistent democracy have led to a growing interest in how that country is governed. This book provides detailed portraits of the seven main political parties by Turkish experts who are close observers of these institutions.

The state and Kurds in Turkey : the question of assimilation by Metin Heper( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The current literature on the Kurds in Turkey is based on the assumption that since the nineteenth century the State has attempted to assimilate the Kurds and that this has been the cause of the intermittent 'troubles' in Turkey. Metin Heper argues that this theory does not stand up to scrutiny given the many centuries of amicable relations between the State and the Kurds. He suggests that a theory of acculturation rather than assimilation better captures the real nature of the State-Kurd interaction in Turkey, by not leaving any part of the interaction unaccounted for."--BOOK JACKET
