This collection of essays in honour of Colin Imber explores some of the subjects that interested the University of Manchester professor during his years as a leading Ottoman historian. From his early works on Ottoman shipping and dockyards, Imber became known as a “historian of the Ottoman state”, a testimony to the breadth of his knowledge. Imber’s place in the study of Ottoman history has been appreciatively assessed by this collection’s first article. The remaining essays by leading Ottomanists from around the world treat a host of subjects from Ottoman provincial towns in the sixteenth century to the Balkan Wars of the early twentieth century. Binding the essays together is the common respect for Colin Imber’s work over the years and a desire to continue his work where he left it.
