Turkey: America's Forgotten Ally

By Dankwart A. Rustow
Council on Foreign Relations, 1987
155 pp. $14.95

In relatively few pages a veteran authority on Turkey introduces Western readers to its changing society, its economy, and especially its politics. He is quite bullish on the prospects for democracy following the latest episode of military rule, and he continually reminds us of Turkey's importance as a Western ally. Rustow may overdo the forgotten-ally theme, but in any event his book is a good guide to the understanding of future problems certain to arise in Turkey's relations with the West, the U.S.S.R. and other countries in the Middle East.
