In this incisive research, Cihan Tuğal argues that the matter with this version of Islamic liberalism is far broader and deeper than Erdogan’s expanding authoritarianism. the issues are inherent within the very version of Islamic liberalism that shaped the root of the AKP's ascendancy and rule in view that 2002—an meant marriage of neoliberalism and democracy.

The Turkish version used to be a failure in its domestic state, and the dynamics of the Arab international made it a tricky commodity to export. Tuğal’s masterful explication of the loss of life of Islamic liberalism brings in Egypt and Tunisia, as soon as visible because the probably fans of the Turkish version, and gives a path-breaking exam in their regimes and Islamist pursuits, in addition to paradigm-shifting debts of Turkey and Iran.
