Book Description

1 May 1997
This major contribution to Ottoman history is now published in paperback in two volumes: the original single hardback volume (1994) has been widely acclaimed as a landmark in the study of one of the most enduring and influential empires of modern times. The authors provide a richly detailed account of the social and economic history of the Ottoman region, from the origins of the Empire around 1300 to the eve of its destruction during World War One. The breadth of range and the fullness of coverage make these two volumes essential for an understanding of contemporary developments in both the Middle East and the post-Soviet Balkan world. The text of volume one is by Halil Inalcik, covering the period 1300-1600. The second volume, written by Suraiya Faroqhi, Bruce McGowan, Donald Quataert and Sevket Pamuk, continues the story to 1914. Each volume examines developments in population, trade, transport, manufacturing, land tenure and the economy, and extensive apparatus and bibliographic information is provided for students and others wishing to pursue the subject in more detail. Both volumes will be fundamental to any future discussion of any aspect of Ottoman history.

4.0 out of 5 stars from the archives: nuts and bolts about agriculture & trade 13 Jan 2002
By Tom L. Forest - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I wouldn't say that social history enters much into the book. The authors have written a straightforward translation and interpretation of the Ottoman archives laying out patterns in revenue from land taxes and customs fees. Reading like a series of focused essays without quite as much synthesis as I would like, still it was a worthwhile read. Most valuable were the new insights I got into the relative importance of trades routes and the organization of land ownership and taxation over time. Also interesting to see was the primacy of slaves and silk in the customs revenue stream, and the impact of commercial motives on Ottoman military expansion. All in all, this is a fine book for those wanting deep knowledge of the early Ottoman economy, civil and state.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best review of ottoman social and economic history 12 April 2000
By Olcay Cetinbas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
if someone wants to investigate ottoman history Inalcık's books may be sophisticated guides for him.He managed to approach with a new methodology to ottoman history with a special emphasis on social and economic life.He wrote a lot of papers and books stemming from his own archieval studies which became main sources for ottoman history studies. In this book İnalcık discusses the most neglected period of ottoman social and economic history,with little attention to political history that had been widely discussed by his collegues before.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best in Ottoman Studies 10 April 2001
By dndnd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
People often avoid books like this because they are not as easy readers as "popular" history books, which often do rely on other people's research. Inalcik's work is amazingly detailed and accurate in details. This book is one of his many valuable contributions to this field. Understanding the economic and social forces at play in this time period has an importance beyond the Ottoman history, as most readers of this book would agree.

5.0 out of 5 stars best book about this subject 14 Jun 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
According to my knowledge this is the best book ever written about Ottoman History. Instead of reading nonscholar books like Lord Kinross's Ottoman Century's I recommend it to everbody. This book studies economic history of Ottoman empire which is essential to understant political history and so on. A must read for all interested about Ottomna history.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great book 4 Jun 2013
By Ilya M. Rakhkovsiy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The authors use tons of statistical data. This is a great for someone interested in land ownership, taxation and trade in Ottoman Empire. The only two problems that the book is a bit dated and a few references to Marxist historians.
