Turkish Foreign Policy
Recent Developments
Edited by Kemal H. Karpat

This volume brings prominent scholars together to discuss recent developments in Turkish foreign policy. The contributors discuss Turkey’s role between the Middle East and Western Europe, its relation to the new independent states of Eastern Europe and Central Asia, its prospects for membership in the European Union, and its role in the Organization for Black Sea Economic Cooperation and the Organization of the Islamic Conference. Also discussed are the comparative foreign policies of the Central Asian states, Turkey, and Iran; the minority population of Western Thrace and its effect on Turco-Greek relations; and Turkey’s policies on Cyprus.

Kemal H. Karpat is Distinguished Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and the author of more than twenty books, including The Politicization of Islam and Studies on Ottoman History.
