"'A revised edition of one of the best short introductions to Ottoman history." --Cornucopia
"The new methodological approach is remarkable." --Archiv orientalni
The Ottoman Empire was one of the most important non-Western states to survive from medieval to modern times, and played a vital role in European and global history. This new survey examines the major trends during the latter years of the empire; it pays attention to gender issues and to hotly-debated topics such as the treatment of minorities. In this second edition, Donald Quataert has updated his lively text and revised the bibliographies. This accessible narrative will appeal to anyone interested in the history of the Middle East.
