Description:
 Turkey: a partner in crisis, by Ömer Taşpinar

One year on, an overwhelming majority of the population considers the United States to be their country’s greatest security threat. In the context of a worsening “clash of civilizations,” even more important than Turkey’s geostrategic position is what it represents as the most institutionally westernized Muslim country in the world.
