Scholars demonstrate that the legacy of the Ottoman Empire is still shaping patterns of behaviour or perception among the peoples of Western Asia, Northern Africa, and South-eastern Europe. This text addresses the question of how ideas and institutions developed in the long Ottoman period continue to shape successor societies and states. Contributors focus on diplomacy, politics, the military, education, language, the arts and literature, and also address the different regional perspectives - of the Arab world, the Balkans, and the Republic of Turkey - on the Ottoman Legacy.
Contributions from some 16 specialists including the editor, L Carl Brown..
