About this product
- DescriptionA high-end geography series that explores some of the fastest-developing countries and cities in the world and assesses how they are dealing with the challenges of the 21st century. Topics looked at include: population structure, the ecomy, environmental sustainability and the outlook for the future. Each title also features a closer look at an individual city within the country. Turkey is an ecomic success story of recent times, and it is changing fast as it moves away from its traditional industries of farming and textiles. These changes are reflected in Turkey's great capital city, Istanbul. But the future holds key challenges. Bridging Europe and Asia, Turkey must decide whether it looks east or west in the future, while retaining its own identity and political stability in a region torn by conflict.
