Abstract

The confrontation between Turkey’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) and media mogul Aydin Dogan illustrates a major shift that has occurred in Turkey since the early 2000s. Dogan Holding is part of a traditional economic elite dominated by a number of large, coastal firms. The AKP is supported by a new generation of businessmen from Anatolia. This essay uses the conflict between the two to spotlight the competing networks of businessmen and politicians that dominate present-day Turkey.
