This thesis analyzes U.S. security assistance to Turkey between 1950 and 1992. It describes historical trends in U.S.-Turkey arms transactions by examining statistical expenditure data on seven components of the U.S. security assistance program. The thesis identifies the impact of four key factors on U.S. arms sales to Turkey during this period. These factors are the Korean War, NATO, GreekTurkish relations, and the Gulf War. Three different aspects of arms sales - military, political, and economic - are taken into consideration. The roles played by Congress and the executive branch in influencing U.S. aid to Turkey are examined. The thesis concludes that the Korean War, NATO, and the Gulf War supported closer military ties between Turkey and the United States, while disputes between Greece and Turkey tended to weaken it.
