The Ottoman Empire, 1700-1922 / Edition 2by Donald Quataert, T. C. W. Blanning, William Beik
Pub. Date: 08/31/2005
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This major new survey of the Ottoman Empire, 1700-1922, strikes a balance among social, economic, and political history. The book 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. Donald Quataert, a distinguished Ottoman scholar, has written a lively, authoritative and accessible introduction, supported by maps, illustrations and a chronology, which will be of enormous value to students and nonspecialists alike.
