Content descriptions

General Note: There is no lack of news coming out of the broad geographic arc of the vast territory that once was the mighty Ottoman Empire. The Arab Spring continues to reshape regions, an economic crisis is tearing apart Greece, pirates off the Horn of Africa are terrorizing ships, and conflicts in the Caucasus and Balkans are simmering. This book chronicles the authors travels through a dizzying array of cultures, religions, languages, and political systems found within many of the former Ottoman Empire's possessions in Africa, Asia, and Europe.
Subject: Turkey > History > Ottoman Empire, 1288-1918.
