Vital Cuinet was a French geographer who was commissioned to survey areas of the Ottoman Empire in the late 19th century to calculate their population and assess the ability of the empire to pay its debts. His research draws a detailed picture of the Ottoman Empire comprising demographic, economic, military, administrative and geographic aspects of the areas which were surveyed. Compiled into seven volumes, these books provide one of the most complete records of the Ottoman Empire in the late 19th century with figures and statistics. In this final volume of the series, Cuinet focuses on the northern and north-western parts of Asia Minor, vilayets of Broussa (Bursa) and Castamouni (Kastamonu).

A Turkish Woman's European Impressions

New Introduction by Reina Lewis
ISBN: 1-59333-207-6
Born into the Ottoman Muslim elite, Zeyneb Hanoum and her sister Melek Hanoum were given a Western-style education by their progressive father, who expected them subsequently to live the segregated lives of Ottoman ladies. Rebelling, the sisters collaborated with the French author Pierre Loti, hoping that harnessing European intellectual support would speed up Ottoman social reform. Fleeing Istanbul in 1906 for fear of imperial reprisals, the sisters traveled in disguise to Europe, hoping to find "freedom" in the West. With Zeyneb Hanum's letters punctuated by Grace Ellison's introduction, commentary, and footnotes, this book challenges Orientalist stereotypes and documents the vibrant engagement between Eastern and Western women at the fin de si├Ęcle.

Unveiled

New Introduction by Carolyn Goffman
ISBN: 1-59333-209-2
Selma Ekrem grew up among the progressive Ottoman Muslim elite. Ekrem benefited from having an unconventional mother, who did not insist on her daughter's veiling. The book covers the family's sojourns outside Istanbul when her father was governor in Jerusalem during the 1908 Young Turk revolution and then governor of the Greek Archipelago Islands, where the whole family was held captive when their island was taken by the Greeks during the Balkan Wars. Returning to Istanbul just as World War I broke out, Ekrem attended the American College for Girls. Frustrated at the restrictions of Turkish female life, Ekrem traveled to America and countered prevalent stereotypes by lecturing on Turkey.
