    6. Halil Inalcik has written an interesting, if basic, history on the Ottoman Empire The book is broken up into four parts, being an outline on Ottoman History, the inner workings of the state, the economic and social realities within the Empire and the intricacies of Ottoman religious and cultural practices These three parts provide an adequate, if brief, understanding of how historians think the Ottoman Empire functioned This book is fairly short, but provides interesting details on this once gra [...]

    8. The history of Ottoman Empire as an Islamic Caliphate has always been recounted numerous times However, personally I feel most times the stories told did not do just to the history when only a small part of the history is being told and often than not, only a biased account is being told Halil Inalcik divides the book in a few sections He started by giving the chronology of the Ottoman Empire, beginning in the 13th century when the Tartar army invaded Baghdad He then touches on every aspects of [...]

    10. I started reading this book a year ago expecting it to follow the British or American style in writing history Unfortunately, the book is similar to most Arabic history books The first chapters are divided based on periods while the following chapters focus on areas like commerce, agriculture, education and so forth Even though I found the style of the book as well as the printing features difficult to follow, I was shocked to know how complicated well organized the different systems are I was p [...]

    13. Un tom masiv, al unui reputat istoric turc, despre epoca clasic a Imperiului Otoman 1300 1600.Ce este foarte interesant aici este c autorul trece rapid peste cronologia propriu zis , pe care o las altor studii, pentru a detalia societatea otoman propriu zis , de la aristocra ie la r nime i robi, de la legisla ie la religie i fanatismul religios, de la rutele comerciale, comer ul interna ional i re eaua de drumului.O societate foarte complex , dezvoltat , aflat ntre Occident i Orient la propriu, [...]

    14. It is an achievement to compress so much knowledge in so few pages while being critical and avoiding final conclusive judgements Obviously, the book lacked in details but it was just meant to provide the reader with enough directions of Ottoman history and society to read further I especially liked last sections on religion and society and the brief analysis regarding reasons of Ottoman decline and rise of fanaticism.

    15. It s got a good bit of information, but, man , is it dry Also, I m not wild about the way it s organized each section covers the whole period founding through the beginning of the 17th Century in chronological order, then the next section starts over again This probably works well if you re looking at how the institutions of the empire developed, but makes it hard to get a picture it as a whole at any particular time.

    16. This book is rather detailed and structured So if one reads it in order to figure out how things really worked in the Ottoman Empire, one will have all questions answered There are however no elements of fiction added to it So if one is seeking infotainment, this book might not be the right choice.
