I guess that the best book is the "Strategic Depth of Turkey" of Ahmet Davutoglu, who is one of the designers of Turkish Imperialism, even though the one who actually inspired the plan was Turgut Ozal, but Ahmet Davutoglu actually gave form to this idea!

It is a book that severely falsifies historic facts so to explain why Turkey's destiny is to become an empire and expand, it is a very interesting book nevertheless and a must read especially if somebody wants to deal with this problem!
