Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of the book, which provides invaluable insights regarding an often neglected, yet very important period in Turkish-American relations. The book puts missing pieces of a puzzle together to form a more comprehensive picture about a seminal period in the evolution of Turkish-American relations during the years between the First and Second World Wars. An intricate web of initiatives and tensions marks this crucial formative phase, which laid the basis for the extensive relationship that marked the ensuing Cold War period. The book aims to provide a better understanding of how the relations as well as the perceptions of the two countries were mutually shaped and transformed in these interwar years. The primary focus of the book is on this often neglected final aspect, which made a significant impact during the period of early contacts in Atatürk's Turkey.
