Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Turkey and its predecessor state, the Ottoman empire, have been at the centre of international relations for centuries. By the late 18th century, what had once been the dominant power in the eastern Mediterranean and south-east Europe was gradually falling apart. For the European statesmen of the 19th century, it had become the "Eastern question" - a complex problem of conflicts and alliances, which also raised difficult and sometimes insoluable questions for the Turks themselves. After the final collapse of the empire at the end of World War I, Turkey was reconstructed as a nation-state by Kemal Ataturk and his colleagues, committed to modernist goals. While there were important elements of continuity between the foreign policies of the old empire and new republic, the challenges of the 20th century also presented Turkey's rulers with new questions and policy options.

Book News Annotation:

In a comprehensive survey of the entire modern period, Hale (politics, U. of London) begins at a period when the Ottoman Empire, no longer the dominant power in the eastern Mediterranean, was falling apart, and ends with Turkish aspirations to join the European Union. The US distribution is by ISBS.

Synopsis:

@text: This is a revised and updated version of Turkish Foreign Policy 1774-2000. It offers a comprehensive and analytical survey of Turkish foreign policy since the last quarter of the eighteenth century, when the Turksa (TM) relations with the rest of the world entered their most critical phase. The main emphasis is on the period since the end of the second world war. For those primarily interested in Turkeya (TM)s modern history, this book fills a clear gap in the literature. For readers with a broader interest in international history, it also offers a crucial example of how a medium sized power has acted in the international environment.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [339]-360) and index.
