Turkey and the West: From Neutrality to Commitment considers the formulation of Turkish foreign policy in the post-Ataturk period of 1938 to 1958 and discusses Turkey s uneasy shift from neutrality to become a member of the Western Alliance. Turkey s decision to ally itself with the Western grouping of states shaped its apprehension of regional and world politics in decades to come. Turkey s choice, however, was neither adequately perceived nor fully appreciated in the volatile atmosphere of 1950s and onwards and went largely unnoticed on the part of Western democracies. A reinterpretation of Turkey's recent history throws considerable light on the complexities surrounding this strategically important country."
