Turkey--Facing a New Millennium: Coping with Intertwined Conflicts

Synopsis

Turkey's involvement in the Gulf War in 1991 paved the way for the country's acceptance into the European Union. This book traces that process and looks at Turkey's foreign policy in the 1990s, considering the repercussions of the fall of communism. It focuses on Turkey's strategic importance that resulted from the waning of the Cold War and the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the skillful way in which Turkey avoided becoming embroiled in the ethnic upheavals in Central Asia, the Balkans and the Middle East, and the development of a continued policy of closer integration into the European and western worlds.
