Turkey: an Economy in Transition

By Z. Y. Hershlag
Van Keulen, 1959
340 pp.

This is a comprehensive study of the Turkish economy from independence through the mid-fifties by an Israeli economist. It draws a picture of the erratic evolution of Turkey's economic policies, illustrated and supported by much material that is not ordinarily available to the English-language reader. The single-minded emphasis on economic growth and the prominent role of the state under etatist and ostensibly non-etatist régimes emerges with clarity, although the work is as non-political as contemporary economic analysis can contrive to be.
