More than two hundred years after the first visit of an American official to Turkey, Turkish and American mutual interests have expanded significantly and developed into what President Clinton termed 'a strategic partnership' at the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. Although the key component of that partnership - security cooperation - has been strained of late due to divergence of opinion regarding war in Iraq, the relationship has strong foundations and has survived. This book presents a colourful and analytical picture of the many aspects of Turkish-American relations from the early years of the 19th century to the post-Cold War era.
