Abstract. The article analyzes the main approaches developed by the American specialists on the dynamics of the contemporary political development of the Turkish Republic. The results of the study suggest that "neo-Ottomanism", still widely used in literature and media to describe the development of modern Turkey, is now less frequently mentioned in the works of the political and academic community of the United States and no longer represents the trends of the development of "new Turkey" during the epoch of Justice and Development Party government.
Key words and phrases: , , " ", " ", , , , foreign policy, the American historiography, "New Ottomanism", "New Turkey", Turkey, the USA, The Middle East.
