Turkey is a country whose importance is rapidly growing in international affairs. A rapidly developing democratic state with a strong economy, complex society, active party system, and powerful armed forces, Turkey is playing an increasingly critical role in Europe, the Middle East, and the Caucasus.
Given Turkey’s significance and the great interest in studying its history,
politics, and foreign policy, Turkish Studies presents a forum
for scholarly discussion on these topics and more. Turkish Studies features
full-length articles, book reviews, and discussion roundtables covering: The
history of the Turkish republic, from the 1920s to the present, including
political, social, and intellectual issues and developments; Turkish politics,
including parties, voting patterns, ideologies, biographies, the army and other
institutions, as well as the political attitudes of different social groups
within the country; The composition and policy-making process of Turkish
governments, including leading figures and movements; Government policies and
programs, including economic, religious, social, and all other issues; Turkish
international relations and foreign policy, including the policy-making process
and Turkish relations with all countries, institutions, and movements.
