Abstract:

At the end of the Cold War every Country was forced to reexamine the fundamental assumptions that had formed their security policies for the last 45 years. Among the victors of the Cold War, few countries were faced with a more disparate set of new circumstances than Turkey. Unlike the United States and Western Europe, victory for Turkey had a very ambivalent quality. Almost overnight Turkey moved from being the buttressing flank of one strategic region, to the epicenter of a new one.
