Turkey-Syria Relations: Between Enmity and Amity
Hinnebusch, Raymond; Tür Küçükkaya, Özlem (Ashgate, 2013-01-01)
In 1997 Turkey and Syria were on the brink of war, engaged in a very real power struggle. Turkey was aligned with Syria's main enemy, Israel, and there were seemingly intractable differences on the issues of borders, the sharing of river waters and trans-border communities.

A comprehensive account of Turkey's Iraq policy requires a discussion of the impact of identity politics and historical narratives on perceptions...

Merih, Celasun (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2005-12)
In contrast to the sharpened policy preferences for sustainable public finances in the EU, Turkey’s post-1990 policy process did not feature a credible political commitment to fiscal consolidation. Turkey postponed the fundamental change in its macroeconomic and public finance strategy until the early 2000s, and undertook these reforms only after experiencing a severe financial crisis.
