Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is the poor boy with Islamic schooling who has taken power in secular Turkey. The press is gagged, the opposition is powerless, and freedom is increasing. Islamist Erdogan promises to recreate a "magnificent Turkey", forging closer ties with Putin's Russia and removing himself from his NATO allies in the US and Europe.

VG journalist Nilas Johnsen has lived for three years in the Turkish metropolis of Istanbul and knows Erdogan's regime from the inside. In the book Erdogan, Turkey's new sultan , he tells the story of Turkey's most powerful man.
