Ali Ihsan Bagis, graduate of the London School of Economics and professor of History at Hacettepe University in Ankara, was tragically killed in a car accident during the prime of his academic career. Bagis’s life and works are honoured by this collection of essays on the meeting of Turks and Europeans throughout history. The authors, who include several notable Ottoman historians, look at such encounters from a number of different perspectives. The fifteen articles look at subjects such as Ottoman diplomats in Europe, American military observers of the Turkish military in the 1920s and Turkey’s interests in the conflict over Bosnia during the 1990s. The authors hope that their contribution to the study of Ottoman/Turkish contacts with Europe will continue the work to which Ali Ihsan Bagis had devoted himself.
