...a useful resource... (Südost-Forschungen)
A huge contribution to Ottoman research and provides historical information on the political, religious, social, and economic aspects of one of the greatest empires in world history...The introduction alone, divided into subject areas that include political history and Ottoman civilization, serves as an essential resource to this era in history...This work should benefit both neophytes and seasoned scholars of Ottoman history. It is an essential resource highly recommended for larger public libraries and academic libraries that support disciplines in world history and Near Eastern studies. (Reference Reviews)
