Abstract


ACCORDİNG TO THE AKİS JOURNAL TURKISH-AMERICAN RELATIONS IN THE LAST YEARS OF DEMOCRATIC PARTY POWER (1957-1960)
In the bipolar world of the post-second world war period, Turkey, due to the northern neighbour’s, Soviet Union, territorial claims, took the side of the Western bloc. Turkey has sought to maintain good relations with the United States, the new leader of the Western bloc especially with its military and economic power. Without the support of the Western Block and specially United States, Turkey would be vulnerable to threats from the USSR, and in this context, the country has joined NATO and has received military and economic aids from the United States. As it can clearly be seen from the 1950s, in Turkey, a pro-American foreign policy has begun to be monitored. However, especially when economic woes increased, the government completely has started to pursue an Americanism policy in Turkey. The reason to include the years 1957-1960 into our study is about the beginning of a serious opposition to the government since 1957, and foreign policy pursued by the government which has caused experiencing economic difficulties blindly by Americanism, which is turned into a policy later. In this paper, from oft-quoted columns in Akis Journal, the opposition public speaker of that era, it is possible to see the points criticized by the Republican People's Party.
