The Ottoman Turks: An Introductory History to 1923
Longman, 1997 - 406 pages
This is an introductory survey of Ottoman history from earliest times to the end of the Empire, written for both students and non-specialists. Although it offers a broad account of events, it is not primarily a political narrative of the Ottoman territories; rather, it investigates the world of the Ottoman Turks themselves, exploring their political, social and economic systems, and examining the lives and customs of ordinary people, as well as of the ruling classes.
