133. New Friends or Old Foes?
The Russo-Ottoman rivalry was one of the defining dramas of the European political stage for centuries. When both of these empires gave way to new states following the First World War, a new period of Soviet-Turkish relations began. In this episode, Onur İşçi follows ups and downs of this relationship over the past century through a discussion of the interplay between domestic and foreign politics in Turkey.
Onur İşçi is a recent graduate of the doctoral program at Georgetown University's Department of History, where he currently teaches the Cold War in the Middle East (see academia.edu)
Nicholas Danfoth is a doctoral candidate at Georgetown University studying the history of modern Turkey (see academia.edu)
