An Overview of The Turkish Press Through The Reports of American Diplomats (1925-1962)

This volume attempts to provide an overview of the Turkish press from 1925 to 1962. The information provided is based on reports by the different American diplomats stationed in the American Embassy in Ankara and in the Consulates of Istanbul, Izmir and Adana. As such, the reports themselves cover a wide spectrum of subjects, from detailed reports on circulation figures to the ideological profiles of the various newspapers, information about the papers' editors and owners to broader questions, like press freedom in Turkey.

As a result, this work will provide the reader with a unique access to a broad picture of the Turkish press in the Republican years, a subject that has yet to receive the attention from scholars that it deserves.
