Book Description

This title was first published in 2000:  An analysis of the relations between Turkey, the West and the newly independent Turkic Republics, in the context of the "Turkish Model" proposed and supported by the West as a possible model for development in the Turkic Republics. It summarizes the Turkish Model of development as applied in Turkey, including its shortcomings, and discusses the role of Turkey in the area after the collapse of the Soviet Union, from the point of view of both the West and Turkey itself. It also analyzes the possible reasons why the Turkish Model was proposed and how the Turkic Republics received it, and why it declined from favour in a short period of time.
