TURKEY: Key to the East by Chester M. Tobin

TURKEY: Key to the East

Email this review


An excellent ""primer"" on Turkey, -- its historical background, its miraculous transformation from a decadent Oriental Empire, to a streamlined modern republic and democracy. This panoramic setting is admirably presented as a basis for better understanding of Turkey's role today: -- her skilfully maintained benevolent neutrality, sanctioned by the Allied nations; her audacity in response to German demands; her bal of diplomatic intrigue in Ankara, in order to preserve her independence and sovereignty.
