6 x 9
This collection of essays by Robert Olson on the Ottoman Empire covers a number of topics of great interest to Ottoman historians. The volume is divided into sections on: the Tulip Period (Lâle Devri) of the Ottoman Empire; the Ottoman-Iranian wars; Jews in the Ottoman Empire; Kurds in Turkey and the Ottoman Empire; and historiographical theories of change, modernity and decline in the eighteenth century. Ranging from the 1970s to the 1990s, Olson’s work comprises some of the first scholarly attempts at exploring many of these issues and remain essential reading in their fields.
