Northern and Central Turkey possess the three key ingredients which give both excitement and interest to a travel book rugged and spectacular scenery a fiercely independent yet hospitable people and an ancient and ever present history br br In i Journey Round Turkey i Guy Arnold makes outstanding use of these ingredients Vivid and rewarding this book narrates the second stage of the journey of exploration and discovery that began by the author with i Down the Danube i his account of and earlier expedition undertaken from the Black Forest to the Black Sea br br For this second stage the author chose two of the great rivers of the ancient world and used them as his line of march and as the parameters of his journey into the harsh life of Central Turkey The longest river in Turkey the Kizil Irmak runs in a great curve across the centre of the country It is the Halys of the ancient world and once formed the boundary of the Lydian Empire The Yesil Irmak is the Isis of antiquity and part of its course runs along the old caravan route from the Black Sea to Baghdad, Britain s political and military elite has for decades nurtured the idea that enduring ties bind the interests of London and Washington in good times and bad Irrespective of the end of the Cold War the attacks and the economic rise of the East these links are allegedly impregnable But how accurate a picture is this Are the British engaged in a monumental act of self delusion br Guy Arnold investigates the American disease at the heart of Whitehall which he argues has tied British policies too closely to those of Washington The special relationship became a Foreign Office priority and gave Britain the illusion of power it no longer enjoyed As Churchill put it acidly the British and the Americans were stuck with each other a junior partner and a senior partner respectively For the Americans it provided a way of keeping Britain on side but in return Washington accelerated Britain s imperial decline br The Americans always saw Britain in Europe as a Trojan Horse to safeguard their interests and as a military outpost for their global ambitions They derided or ignored the special relationship even in their dealings with Thatcher and Blair and latterly the Foreign Office has failed to convince President Obama of its unique importance br, No description available, Gaddofi and Libya s international relations since
