This new edition examines the changing relationship between Turkey and the United States, taking into account the continuing crisis in the Middle East and west Asia, the uncertainty over Cyprus, and the massive Turkish depression. The essays probe further the growth and complexity of the relationship and the evolution of Turkey's major internal problems—the Kurdish issue, the rise of Islam, and the role of the military in political life, and the prospects for renewed economic growth—and their impact on U.S. policy. More attention is paid to Turkish perceptions in a new chapter on how Turkey manages its policy toward the United States. Contributors include Cengiz Candar Sabah newspaper, Istanbul) Heath W. Lowry (Princeton University) Henri Barkey (Lehigh University) Yalim Eralp (CNNTurkey and a former senior Turkish diplomat) Ercan Kumcu (former deputy director of Turkey's Central Bank) Philip Robins (St. Antony's College, Oxford University) M.
