James Petras was in Turkey during 7th-17th January 2004. This was his first visit to this country, very close to his family origins, and the visit all together was a very valuable contribution for the Turkish activists and militants of the social movements, who for a long time knew and followed his studies, especially on imperialism and Latin American social movements.

Petras was invited to Turkey by People’s Houses (Halkevleri- a democratic neighbourhood organisation of the working people) and by Cosmopolitik quarterly magazine, which is publishing his books in Turkish. He had two conferences in
Istanbul and Ankara under the title of “Imperialism, Globalisation and Resistance”.

Below is the interview with Petras, which is dated 16th January 2003, done by Çigdem Çidamlý and Hakan Tanittiran for Cospomolitik and www. (a labour web in Turkish).
