Ancient Affections: Ethnic Groups and Foreign Policy
Ancient Affections: Ethnic Groups and Foreign Policy
By Laurence Halley
Praeger, 1985, 190 pp

In 1975 Congress imposed an embargo on American arms shipments to Turkey because of Turkey's invasion of Cyprus. The author of this rather rambling study argues that the embargo was the result almost entirely of pressure by Greek-Americans who placed ethnic "affections" above the American national interest. Thin chapters on Polish-Americans and Irish-Americans are appended.
