Making use of the Ruscheweyh derivatives, we introduce the subclasses T(n,α,λ)(n{0,1,2,3,},π/2<α<π/2,and0λcos2α) of functions f(z)=z+k=2akzk which are analytic in |z|<1. Subordination and inclusion relations are obtained. The radius of α-spirallikeness of order ρ is calculated. A convolution property and a special member of T(n,α,λ) are also given.
