Suleyman the Magnificent (r. 1520-566) is undoubtedly the most famous of all the Ottoman monarchs to have ruled in the dynasty’s 500-year history. The Sultan who conquered most of the Middle East and laid siege to Malta and Vienna has long attracted interest, and this volume collects together the efforts of scholars who convened in 1987 for two conferences on Suleyman and his time. The twenty-five articles in the collection cover a wide range of aspects of the Ottoman Empire in the sixteenth century, exploring Suleyman the person, the government under him, and the state’s society and culture. Edited by Halil Inalcik and Cemal Kafadar, this book contains the work of many of the world’s leading Ottomanists and is one of the best examples of scholarship on the Ottoman Empire under Suleyman.
