NOVOS LIVROS; JAMIL HASANLI, STALIN AND THE TURKISH CRISIS OF THE COLD WAR, 1945-1953

FONTE: Cold War International History Project

Jamil Hasanli, former Wilson Center scholar and professor of history at Baku State University  explore the ups and downs of Soviet-Turkish relations during and immediately after World War II. Hasanli draws on declassified archive documents from the United States, Russia, Armenia, Georgia, Turkey, and Azerbaijan to recreate a picture of the time when the ‘Turkish crisis’ of the Cold War broke out explaining why and how the friendly relations between the USSR and Turkey escalated into enmity, led to the increased confrontation between these two countries, and ended up with Turkey’s entry into NATO. Hasanli uses recently-released Soviet archive documents to shed light on some dark points of the Cold War era and the relations between the Soviets and the West.
