Encyclopedia of the Ottoman Empire

£39.99

Product description

Published in 2008/9 by Facts on File. Illustrated with black & white pictures. Includes a glossary and index.

Once stretching from Vienna in the north to Iraq and Yemen in the south, the Ottoman Empire has played an integral role in the history of Eurasia and the Middle East. The dynamics and complexity of the present-day Middle East and Balkans cannot be understood without an examination of the history of the Ottoman Empire that ruled these regions for centuries.
Encyclopedia of the Ottoman Empire provides a thorough overview of the history and civilisation of the Ottomans, with approximately 450 A-to-Z entries focusing on major events, personalities, institutions, and terms. With signed articles by experts in the field, this comprehensive one-volume resource also includes essential information regarding imperialism and the emerging Balkan, Arab, and Turkish nationalism; the demise of the empire; and Ottoman legacy in the Balkans and the Middle East. Further readings, approximately 80 black-and-white photographs and maps, cross-references, a chronology, glossary, bibliography, and an index complement the text, giving readers an in-depth understanding of the broad and fascinating history of the Ottoman Empire.

In excellent almost 'as new' condition throughout. One or two light marks on the glossy illustrated boards.
