9780275921415: Turkey and the United States: The Arms Embargo Period

This volume examines the impact of the arms embargo imposed by the United States against Turkey in 1974. The author concludes that the arms embargo as a tool of influence did not achieve the desired results for two reasons. First, the arms embargo, while widely used by the United States, almost never had the intended effect on the policies of the targeted state. Second, Turkish concerns about the nature of their relationship with the United States were exacerbated by the stress of the embargo. United States insensitivity to Turkish history and culture and Turkey's inability to understand American policies contributed greatly to the difficulties faced by the United States and Turkey in maintaining an alliance relationship during the embargo period.

Review:

"The author sets out to discuss and evaluate Turkish-US relations between 1974 and 1980, the period when the US had a variety of sanctions against Turkey, including (1975-76) an arms embargo. The declared purpose of the sanctions was to influence Turkey to settle the Cyprus issue on grounds favorable to the Greek Cypriot community and hence to Greece. The sanctions failed to achieve the goal, largely because of Turkey's objections to what it considered colonial, imperialistic, and high-handed actions by the US reminiscent of the British, French, and Russian imperialism of the 19th century. There was also opposition from both left and right to increased ties with the US. Campany's dissertation deals with a topic of extreme importance, US-Turkish relations, on which there is a dearth of material, a lacuna of research, and a lack of good scholarship."-Choice
