Erdogan Rising: The Battle for the Soul of Turkey 埃爾多安崛起：土耳其的領軍人物
Who is Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and how did he lead a democracy on the fringe of Europe into dictatorship? How has chaos in the Middle East blown back over Turkey’s borders? And why doesn’t the West just cut Erdogan and his regime off? Hannah Lucinda Smith has been living in Turkey as the Times correspondent for nearly a decade, reporting on the ground from the onset of the Arab Spring through terrorist attacks, mass protests, civil war, unprecedented refugee influx and the explosive, bloody 2016 coup attempt that threatened to topple – and kill – Erdogan. Today she talks with Ravi Mattu, Deputy Asia Editor of the Financial Times, about how this century’s most successful populist won his position, and where Turkey is headed next. In ENGLISH, and available 24 hours later with CHINESE subtitles.
