The Early Modern Ottomans: Remapping the Empire

By: Virginia H. Askan and Daniel Goffman (eds)

Publisher: New Delhi, India, Cambridge University Press: 2007

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 020790

ISBN: 0521520851

Condition: New


A groundbreaking reinterpretation of the middle years of the Ottoman Empire, from the conquest of Byzantium in 1453 to the establishment of the Tanzimat in 1839. This period saw the evolution of the Empire from the height of its powers to - as the traditional view has it - an empire in decline, unable to modernise in the face of globalisation and European ascendancy. The contributors challenge this view, demonstrating how the Ottomans came to be modern on their own terms. They explore the Ottomans as politicians and diplomats, military reformers, artists and historians. They also map out and r... View more info

Price: $46.99

Seller ID: 701505

ISBN: 9789386552556

Condition: New


This volume is a collection of essays on untouchability written by Professor Jha at various points of his long and illustrious career. It dwells on the manner in which social stratification in ancient India developed to exclude castes like Candalas and Nisadas, leading to their exploitation and sub-human treatment. The book begins with tracing the origin and condition of Candalas (1000 BC to AD 600), who were first mentioned in later Vedic literature (1000 to 600 BC) at the Purushamedha (symbolic human sacrifice) dedicated to deity Vayu. Another essay examines the acculturation of the Nisadas-... View more info

About the Book In this widely praised book, Vladislav Zubok argues that Western interpretations of the Cold War have erred by exaggerating either the Kremlin's pragmatism or its aggressiveness. Explaining the interests, aspirations, illusions, fears, and misperceptions of the Kremlin leaders and Soviet elites, Zubok offers a Soviet perspective on the greatest standoff of the twentieth century. Using recently declassified Politburo records, ciphered telegrams, diaries, and taped conversations, among other sources, Zubok offers the first work in English to cover the entire Cold War from the Sovi...

This is a study of Indian economic history. The economic position is sketched at the opening of the seventeenth century. The period covers the reigns of the Mughal Emperors Jahangir and Shah Jahan.

The book attempts to supply such a beginning, by furnishing an account of the economic position at the close of Akbar`s reign; there is little prospect that adequate materials for a similar study of earlier periods will ever become available, but our knowledge of the closing years of the 16th century appears to be sufficient to justify the attempt. The aim of the book is to present a sketch of the economic life of India at the opening of the 17th century that is to say, at the period immediately antecedent to the first appearance of those new forces which were destined to exercise an increasin...

1st Edition. India’s twentieth century struggle for political freedom was and remains an epic achievement in the human experience. Quite apart from its global influence, this is perhaps as familiar a story as it is remarkable given the legacy of Gandhi, among others of that small generation of founders, whose unique leadership roles are rightly considered to have been transformational in the achievement of freedom in 1947, and in the promulgation on the Constitution of January 1950. But it must then also be said that the roles of the founding leadership were balanced and in many ways defined... View more info

The work, first published in 1925 in the series Der indische Kulturkreis in Einzeldarstellungen (in German), has been considered a classic, but has not been easily accessible to the English reading public. The publication of the English translation opens up many new vistas of exploration. The author's concern was not restricted to the archaeological features of this group of temples but went much further into the interpretation and identification of the historical processes of acculturization, diffusion and autochthonous tendencies.
