The collapse of the Ottoman Empire was by no means a singular event. After six hundred years of ruling over the peoples of North Africa, the Balkans and Middle East, the death throes of sultanate encompassed a series of wars, insurrections, and revolutions spanning the early twentieth century. This volume encompasses a full accounting of the political, economic, social, and international forces that brought about the passing of the Ottoman state. In surveying the many tragedies that transpired in the years between 1908 and 1922, Fall of the Sultanate explores the causes that eventually led so many to view the legacy of the Ottomans with loathing and resentment.

The volume provides a retelling of this critical history as seen through the eyes of those who lived through the Ottoman collapse. Drawing upon a large gamut of sources in multiple languages, Ryan Gingeras strikes a critical balance in presenting and interpreting the most impactful experiences that shaped the lives of the empire's last generation. The story presented here takes into account the perspectives of the empire's diverse population as well as the leaders who piloted the state to its end. In surveying the personal, communal, and national struggles that defined Italy's invasion of Libya, the Balkan War, the Great War, and the Turkish War of Independence, Fall of the Sultanate presents readers with a fresh and comprehensive exposition of how and why Ottoman imperial rule ended in bloodshed and disillusionment.

About the Author:


Born in New York, Ryan Gingeras received his doctorate in history from the University of Toronto in 2006. He is the author of three books on the history of the Ottoman Empire and Turkey, including Heir to the Empire: Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and Heroin, Organized Crime, and the Making of Modern Turkey.

Review:


"Gingeras is a judicious navigator...Drawing on Ottoman, German, U.S., and British archival documents, diaries, and memories, as well as on parliamentary records and contemporary newspapers, Gingeras tells a complicated story in crystal-clear prose, making it accessible to specialists and non-specialists alike."--Mustafa Aksakal, American Historical Review


"[A]n easily read, composite story Gingeras manages to pull out unique kernels of wisdom from this often-traumatic history...An excellent study accessible to a broad audience...Highly recommended."--CHOICE
