The Ottoman Empire and the World Around It


"...the leading lasy in the domain of Ottoman historical studies today...all experienced academic teachers of history will do well by buying this book and putting it on their reference shelves." --Bibliotheca Orientals

Book Description
In Islamic law the world was made up of the House of Islam and the House of War with the Ottoman Sultan--the perceived successor to the Caliphs--supreme ruler of the Islamic world. However, Suraiya Faroqhi demonstrates that there was no iron curtain between the Ottoman and other worlds but rather a long-established network of diplomatic, financial, cultural and religious connections. These extended to the empires of Asia and the modern states of Europe. Faroqhi's book is based on a huge study of original and early modern sources, including diplomatic records, travel and geographical writing, as well as personal accounts.
