This anthology of texts on Ottoman history was collected and written by Michel Balivet, professor at the University of Provence, and is the first of its kind. Despite the growing amount of scholarship on the history of the Ottoman Empire, there has previously not existed any survey of the significant primary sources in this field. This book is written in reply to this demand. Rather than being an exhaustive analysis, this collection of texts and excerpts offers a systematic overview of early Ottoman history stimulating the curiosity to learn more. The history of the Ottoman Empire stretches far and wide both in time and space, and a limitation of scope is inevitable. The texts selected for this anthology are written in the formative period of the first two centuries of the Empire, the earliest dating from 1302 and the latest from around 1590. Each excerpt is supplied with bibliographical references and with an introduction explaining the historical context. This book should benefit students of Ottoman history and scholars interested in extending their knowledge of primary sources.

A Turkish Woman's European Impressions

New Introduction by Reina Lewis
ISBN: 1-59333-207-6
Born into the Ottoman Muslim elite, Zeyneb Hanoum and her sister Melek Hanoum were given a Western-style education by their progressive father, who expected them subsequently to live the segregated lives of Ottoman ladies. Rebelling, the sisters collaborated with the French author Pierre Loti, hoping that harnessing European intellectual support would speed up Ottoman social reform. Fleeing Istanbul in 1906 for fear of imperial reprisals, the sisters traveled in disguise to Europe, hoping to find "freedom" in the West. With Zeyneb Hanum's letters punctuated by Grace Ellison's introduction, commentary, and footnotes, this book challenges Orientalist stereotypes and documents the vibrant engagement between Eastern and Western women at the fin de siècle.

Unveiled

New Introduction by Carolyn Goffman
ISBN: 1-59333-209-2
Selma Ekrem grew up among the progressive Ottoman Muslim elite. Ekrem benefited from having an unconventional mother, who did not insist on her daughter's veiling. The book covers the family's sojourns outside Istanbul when her father was governor in Jerusalem during the 1908 Young Turk revolution and then governor of the Greek Archipelago Islands, where the whole family was held captive when their island was taken by the Greeks during the Balkan Wars. Returning to Istanbul just as World War I broke out, Ekrem attended the American College for Girls. Frustrated at the restrictions of Turkish female life, Ekrem traveled to America and countered prevalent stereotypes by lecturing on Turkey.
