A profoundly documented and fascinating discourse into a less studied period of Turkish foreign
policy in the Middle East during the Cold War, the knowledge of which is of utmost importance for understanding Ankara’s current stance in regional affairs.

Behcet Kemal Yesilbursa offers readers a thorough analysis of important events in Turkey’s
domestic and foreign policy. Each of the social political and economic changes that occurred in
the past hundred years is examined individually from an original pers,oective. Referring to the
British archival documents, Yesilbursa provkles a different view of the Cold War era and its impact on Turkey, and the historical roots of the nationalist movements in the Middle East. I believe this work will be an invaluable reference source for young academicians studying these topics.
