الدولة العثمانية ( 1700 م – 1922 م)

دونالد كواترت ( أستاذ التاريخ في جامعتي بنغهامبتون ونيويورك، متخصص في التاريخ العثماني وله عدة كتب حول هذا الموضوع)

لا أدري كم مر على هذا الكتاب وهو في مكتبتي !! فواقع أنني أشتري عددا ً لا بأس به من الكتب من المكتبات أو من معارض الكتب، يجعل بعض الكتب تنتظر عندي أعواما ً حتى يحل موعد قراءتها، وبعضها تنتهي صلاحيته وأنا لم أقرأه – فلبعض الكتب تاريخ صلاحية بحيث نكتشف عندما نأتي لقراءتها بأننا تجاوزناها وأنها لم تعد تفيدنا، وقليلة هي الكتب المفتوحة الصلاحية بحيث نقر

Modern Turkey tends to be overlooked in the discourse on events occurring in the world today, but it is only one of some 30 countries that were included in its forerunner the Ottoman Empire, which was one of the most important states to survive from the medieval period into modern times, playing a very vital role in both European and global history. It's legacy continues to influence the peoples of the Middle East, the Balkans, central and eastern Europe to this very day. The author Donald Quata ...more
I read this for my Islamic World 1700-present class. This is definitely an area of interest for me, and I felt that the book was pretty well-written and comprehensive, though it did sacrifice detail for brevity. Written from a modern perspective, so some nice side comments making the history relevant to today.

Okay. Tirando a parte dos sultões com as suas chapeletas absolutamente fab, consta ter existido um império que durou por mais de seis séculos sobre o qual eu sabia cheta! Mas ao que parece a culpa não é só minha; tal é o preconceito cultural tanto dos seus Estados sucessores como nosso também (patente no despeito europeu face à integração turca na UE). Mas bene, ao menos deu para perceber a mescla balcã e parte dos recrudescentes conflitos religiosos no médio oriente!

Mas mais sobre o nosso Portu
Appreciated all of the facets explored. Language was clear without being dull or too dry. Could have used more small stories, as these were the best parts.

The book speaks no good about this era.The author tried out sorting every thing bad about them and compiled it in a book to ruin the image of the Islamic history.I do accept that the ottoman empire had lots of blunders committed in its time, but it doesnt give the author the right to hide the other good aspects of this empire ! In short ,the book is very boring and deficient.
It was a different take in the way the author wrote it unlike other history texts (which are normally written chronologically) as this one was written topically and did a lot of skipping around based on what happened in events, then referring the reader to other chapters (forward or backward) that described something more thoroughly when the events/topics overlapped. It also read a lot more fluidly than most history texts since its targeted audience is for the general audience/students taking an ...more
A decent review of the late Ottoman Empire until its dissolution in 1922. An academic text for those truly interested in the Ottoman Empire.

Much less detail than in Finkel's book, but a lot more emphasis on why things might have happened.
A good book, with nice line of the facts and actually easy to read for a history book.
great and concise
