As part of the BBC News Meet The Author interviews, historian Norman Stone talks to Nick Higham about his latest book, Turkey: A Short History.

He explains how Turkey has shaken off its 19th century image as "the sick man of Europe", why he casts doubt on claims of state-sponsored genocide of ethnic Armenians and why he swapped Oxford for Ankara.
