About this product
- DescriptionThis skillfully written text presents the full sweep of Ottoman history from its beginnings on the Byzantine frontier in about 1300, through its development as an empire, to its late eighteenth-century confrontation with a rapidly modernizing Europe. Itzkowitz delineates the fundamental institutions of the Ottoman state, the major divisions within the society, and the basic ideas on government and social structure. Throughout, Itzkowitz emphasizes the Ottomans' own conception of their historical experience, and in so doing penetrates the surface view provided by the insights of Western observers of the Ottoman world to the core of Ottoman existence.
- Author BiographyNorman Itzkowitz is professor in the Department of Near Eastern Studies at Princeton University. He is, with Max Mote, translator of Mubadele: An Ottoman-Russian Exchange of Ambassadors.
