The origins of the Ottomans, whose enterprise ruled much of the Near East for more than half a millennium, have long tantalized and eluded scholars, many of whom have thrown up their hands in exasperation. While the later fourteenth- and fifteenth-century history of the Ottomans has become better known, the earlier years have proved an alluring and recalcitrant puzzle. A reconsideration of the sources and a canvass of new ones has long been overdue. Rudi Paul Lindner’ s Explorations in Ottoman Prehistory is the first book in over sixty years to reassess the overture to Ottoman history.
In addition to conducting a critical examination of the Ottoman chronicles and the Byzantine annals, Lindner develops hitherto unutilized geographic data and previously unknown numismatic evidence and also draws on travelers’ descriptions of the Anatolian landscape in an earlier epoch. By investigating who the Ottomans were, where they came from, and where they settled and why, as well as what sort of relationships they had with their neighbors in the late thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries, Lindner makes an engaging and lucid contribution to an otherwise very small store of knowledge of Ottoman history in the early stages of the empire.
Rudi Paul Lindner is Professor of History at the University of Michigan and author of Nomads and Ottomans in Medieval Anatolia, part of Indiana University’ s Uralic and Altaic Series.

Book Description The University of Michigan Press, United States, 2007. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Explorations in Ottoman Prehistory provides a new understanding of early Ottoman history. Specifically, Lindner investigates who the Ottomans were, where they came from, where they settled and why, as well as what sort of relationships they had with their neighbors in the late thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries. Flawed sources and skepticism among historians has led to a general sentiment of doubt among scholars as to how, or whether, historians can sufficiently discuss the origins of the Ottomans. Many feel that the lack of sources makes constructing any history futile. Lindner s careful treatment of these unusual sources, and the development of new ones more than adequately addresses these concerns and makes a strong case for the need to examine and trace early Ottoman history. Professor Linder s lively writing style makes this an appealing read for both students and specialists of medieval studies, as well as for general readers with an interest in Ottoman history.
