Philipp's book provides a testament to the dynamism of eighteenth-century societies.
Philipp's Acre is a solid and noteworthy piece of research and brings to the fore important and much-overlooked aspects of the history of the period and area.
— Philip S. Khoury
Both scholars and lay readers will appreciate Philipp's decision to relegate detailed information on population, trade, and administrative structure to appendices that constitute about a third of the book... Future researchers interested in these questions will thank their stars for Philipp's solid research on the key actors, events, and overall political context of this fascinating chapter in the history of Ottoman Palestine.
Philipp has mined his... sources intelligently and judicially to capture Acre's moment in history.
