Turkey facing east

Islam, modernity and foreign policy

Ayla Göl

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Based on its critical analysis of Turkish state transition and foreign policy, Turkey facing east offers perspectives on the extant possibilities for the particular transitional states resulting from the Arab spring uprisings
  • It highlights the importance of Turkey's Eastern affairs - with Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia and the Soviet Union - as opposed to its pro-Western orientation and policies
  • It offers a new interdisciplinary theoretical approach to foreign policy of transitional states by bringing history, sociology and foreign policy analysis together
  • This is the first book to analyse the complexity of the relationship between Islam, modernity and foreign policy, and the socio-historical conditions of the Turkish transition from an Islamic empire to a modern state and their implications for foreign policy making
