Description

The question of "who were the Ottomans" has occupied many scholars over the last hundred years. The Ottoman Empire was a formidable force involved in European politics and commerce almost since its inception; yet, despite its prominence, the Ottomans are often not emphasized in narratives of medieval and early modern Europe.Beginning with an introduction to pre-Ottoman history, this book traces the emergence of the Ottoman Empire from the Turkic migrations out of Central Asia to their encounters with the Islamic world. It also explores the expansion of Ottoman rule not just into the Middle East but into the Balkans and North Africa. Uncovering the strategies behind the longevity of the Ottoman Empire, the author highlights the Empire’s pragmatism and flexibility in governing over vast territories and diverse peoples. Beautifully illustrated in full color throughout, A Short History of the Ottoman Empire utilizes clear headings, themes, text boxes, primary source translations, and maps to assist students in understanding the Empire’s complex and lengthy history.

Renée Worringer is an associate professor of Islamic and Middle East History in the Department of History at the University of Guelph.
