Summary
In 'Challenging Neoliberalism at Turkey's Gezi Park', Gürcan and Peker focus on Turkey's struggle against 'neoliberalism with Islamic characteristics', and ask what material, objective, and subjective factors account for the emergence and persistence of this robust protest cycle. The authors also study the effect the movement has had on the development of collective leadership mechanisms and political consciousness that can potentially alter the configuration of social forces in the country. Through a Marxist political sociological perspective, the authors shed light on the class basis, conjunctural underpinnings, organizational forms, and political expressions of the Gezi Park Protests as an exceptional cycle of mass mobilization in neoliberal times.--
