Following the defeat of the Ottoman Empire, the harsh terms of the treaty of Sèvres were imposed by the victorious powers in 1920. However, the nationalist struggle allowed the nascent Turkish Republic to renegotiate a more favourable settlement at the Lausanne conference in 1923. Sevtap Demirci’s Strategies and Struggles explores the emergence of Britain as a new Middle East power and how it dealt with the changing military and diplomatic situation in Anatolia. Demirci’s work is the first exhaustive attempt to study the evolving diplomatic strategies of Turkey and Britain before and during the Lausanne Conference. Demirci, making extensive use of the both Turkish and British primary sources, gives a chronological account of the conference as it occurred behind closed doors. Strategies and Struggles is, therefore, an important contribution to understanding both Britain’s interwar experience in the Middle East as well as the formative diplomatic efforts of the Turkish Republic.
