The final chapter focuses on the recognition of the modern Turkish nation-state by international society. It explores the extent to which Turkish-Bolshevik relations were based on their common struggle against Western imperialism. After analysing the causes of the historic rapprochement between the newly established governments of Ankara and Moscow, it particularly engages with the challenges of modern statehood – sovereignty, legitimacy, territoriality and national identity – during the emergence of modern Turkey as the first example of a modern state in a Muslim country.
