For several decades, Carl Max Kortepeter was a leading historian of the Ottoman Empire’s political structures. This volume brings together examples of Kortepeter’s work from the 1960s through to the 1990s. These include Kortepeter’s influential studies on the origins of Ottoman power and the state’s Islamic-Turkish social structures. His diverse interests also extend to peripheral regions of the Empire, such as the Hijaz, the Crimea, Hungary and Algeria. Kortepeter has further studied the contacts between the Ottoman Empire and countries who are not so commonly associated with the Middle East, the United States and Prussia. With an introduction by Halil Inalcik, The Ottoman Turks brings to print again the Kortepeter’s experience of more than thirty years of Ottoman studies.
