Imperial Legacy : The Ottoman Imprint on the Balkans and the Middle East [1996]

£12.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Published in 1996 by Columbia University Press. Packed with maps, charts and photographs and includes an extensive and useful index.

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..

Light wear to the corners of the cover, and the front cover does not lie flat. However still in very good clean condition throughout.
