Editorial Reviews

Choice

"A very interesting work on the Habsburg Empire's interaction with Islam in the form of the Ottoman Empire. . . . Fichtner's extensive use of Habsburg sources gives readers a great deal of insight into how and why the Habsburgs as well as the Catholic Church created numerous negative stereotypes of Muslims, some of which seem all too familiar today. . . . A very valuable addition to both Habsburg and Ottoman studies."--Choice
