This selection of articles by Elena Frangakis-Syrett, professor at the City University of New York, are a compilation of economic history of the Ottoman Empire between the eighteenth and twentieth centuries. Frangakis-Syrett takes as her main subjects, monetary and trading practices in the Ottoman Empire and the Ottoman maritime world and, finally, the port city of Izmir. Her works on trade deal with the conditions of international trade between the Ottoman Empire and Europe in the pre-industrial eighteenth century. Izmir is of special interest as it developed into the primary port for trade with Europe. Frangakis-Syrett also considers internal trade, which ran through the three major ports of Istanbul, Izmir and Alexandria. The state’s role in the economy, through the issue of specie to its financial policies, are described in conjunction with how the market interacted with it. Frangakis-Syrett also considers internal trade, which ran through the three major ports of Istanbul, Izmir and Alexandria. Together, the articles comprise one of the major works of Ottoman economic history.
