Turkish Foreign Policy: Islam, Nationalism, and Globalization (Middle East Today) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sources of Turkeys foreign policy behavior are often found in the ideological battle among four major ideological groups: secularist nationalism, Islamic nationalism, secular liberalism, and Islamic liberalism. Exploring the Ottoman origins of this ideological battle, this book moves on to discuss how rival identity groups competed to shape foreign policy in different periods of the Republican era. It traces the rise and decline of political parties and movements representing these ideological positions and their competition to shape and utilize foreign policy in line with their values and interests. A special focus is given to discussion of foreign policy during the last eight years under the Justice and Development Party.

Synopsis:

This book explores how Turkeys contested national identity affects its foreign policy throughout different its recent history since the late Ottoman era. The book takes a constructivist approach in asserting that identity matters for foreign policy decisions, but it separates itself from statist approaches by bringing identity question into domestic politics. The book argues that modern Turkish foreign policy is a product of ideological struggles that have been produced by historical memory and evolved over time.
