Goffman (history, Ball State U.) provides an introduction to the history and institutions of the Ottoman Empire and its dealings with the rest of Europe. Following an introductory overview, eight chapters discuss Ottoman organizations and peoples and how such institutions and the personalities they produced co-existed with and influenced the Mediterranean and European worlds. The body of the text is broadly chronological and examines Ottoman political, religious, societal, diplomatic and economic concerns. Each chapter begins with a vignette that addresses a troublesome spot in Ottoman historiography, filling out and personalizing the historical record. The book contains 30 b&w illustrations and seven maps. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
