Description

What was the significance of the Ottoman Empire? What kind of lives did people live? What lessons can be learnt from the civilization that the Ottomans created? What does the Ottoman Empire mean to us today? One of Turkey’s leading historians, Ilber Ortayli, answers all these questions in “Discovering the Ottomans”, a brilliant set of learned and engaging reflections on the everyday life, legacy and enduring relevance of the Ottomans.

Ilber Ortayli is the Director of the Topkapi Palace Museum, Professor of History at Galatasaray University in Istanbul and Bilkent University in Ankara and is one of Turkey’s leading authorities on Ottoman history, known for making history accessible to a wider audience.

“Lyrical yet careful, this introduction to the Ottoman reality will soon become a classic of popular history-writing.” — T.J. Winter, University of Cambridge
