Donald Quataert’s Manufacturing and Technology Transfer in the Ottoman Empire, 1800-1914 explores how modern industrial techniques were introduced to Anatolia in the nineteenth century. Quataert, a leading Ottoman economic historian, deals with technical issues – such as how factories were physically transported to the Ottoman Empire – as well as theoretical issues, such as the role of diaspora and non-Muslim communities in technology transfer. Quataert divides his work to focus on overcoming obstacles to the new technologies, the movement of low-level technology, the transfer of factories and the special case of the silk-weaving industry.
