The changes in the international system epitomised by the year 1989 had a profound effect on Turkey, which at that point moved from being a secondary player in a global conflict to a central player in a range of new regional conflicts - the product of an international system in transition. Whether in the Balkans, the Transcaucasus, Central Asia or the Middle East, Turkey has emerged as an actor of pivotal importance, not least to the West. This text examines the origins, organic political make-up and direction of Turkish foreign policy during this period of flux. The author contends that since 1989 domestic factors - history, security, ideology and political economy - have determined foreign policy. In four case studies - the Bosnian conflict, ties with Israel, Ankara's involvement with northern Iraq and relations with the "Turkic" republics of Central Asia - the foreign policy implications are treated in detail.


  • Part 1 Turkish foreign policy in context: Turkey and the changing international system
  • players and processes. Part 2 Explaining Turkish foreign policy: history and foreign relations
  • ideology as foreign policy
  • security and foreign policy
  • economics as foreign policy. Part 3 Turkish foreign policy in action: Turkey and Israel - embattled allies in the "New Middle East"
  • self-interest before sentiment - Turkey's relations with the Turkic republics
  • Turkey and northern Iraq - learning to live with contradictions
  • in pursuit of peace - Turkey and the Bosnian crisis.

This is a personal memoir, which follows the author's idiosyncratic but admired The Experience of Finland, is dedicated to Anglo-Norse friends, and is a celebration of more than 50 years of Norwegian experiences.
