Description

The American-led invasion of Iraq in March 2003 has had an unpredictable impact on the role and policies of Turkey. Although Turkey gave vital support to America in the first Gulf War, in the second, America’s only formal ally in the region refused to support US strategy. To explain Turkey’s changing foreign policy, William Hale examines the relationship between Turkey, the United States, and Iraq since the 1920s. Published in association with the London Middle East Institute at SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies).

William Hale is a professor of Turkish politics and former head of the Department of Political and International Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London.
