This volume is a collection of essays by Colin Imber, professor of Turkish at the University of Manchester. Identifying nationalism – both Turkish and non-Turkish – as having the single greatest influence on the direction of Ottoman studies, Imber attempts to avoid the pitfalls presented by nationalism and other negative trends in the field. As a philologist, Imber uses a distinctively non-social sciences approach to the analysis of texts. Therefore, Imber's articles on the Ottoman navy, Islamic sects and Ottoman civil law are all influenced by his close reading of archival materials.
