Approaching Ottoman history : an introduction to the sources by Suraiya Faroqhi( )

36 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 2,323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a compelling exploration of the ways that primary and secondary sources can be used to interpret history, the author reaches out to students and researchers in the field and in related disciplines to familiarise them with these documents. By considering both archival and narrative sources, she explains why they were prepared, encouraging her readers to adopt a critical approach to their findings, and disabusing them of the notion that everything recorded in official documents is necessarily true."

Living in the Ottoman ecumenical community : essays in honour of Suraiya Faroqhi by Vera Costantini( )

14 editions published in 2008 in English and German and held by 1,184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book dedicated to Suraiya Faroqhi shows that the early modern world was not only characterized by its having been split up into states with closed frontiers. Writing history 'from the bottom', by treating the Ottoman Empire and other countries as 'subjects of history', reduces the importance of political borders for doing historical research. Each social, economic and religious group had its own world-view and in most of the cases the borders of these communities were not identical with the political frontiers.Regarding the Ottoman Empire and the other early modern states as systems of di
Crafts and craftsmen of the Middle East : fashioning the individual in the Muslim Mediterranean by Suraiya Faroqhi( )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 1,111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Crafts and Craftsmen of the Middle East presents original interdisciplinary research and reveals inner glimpses into the lives of craftsmen working within and outside the guild structure in the modern and contemporary Mediterranean world. From the late sixteenth-century Ottoman Empire to traditional style crafts in twentieth-century Turkey and Egypt, the book surveys a multitude of traditions. It begins in 1582 when Istanbul artisans paraded in front of Sultan Murad III, then moves through to eighteenth and nineteenth-century struggles and accommodation between different groups of artisans and craftsmen in Istanbul, Salonica, Veria, Cairo and Damascus, looking at various situations within the Muslim, Jewish and Christian working communities. The volume concludes with studies on contemporary Cairo as well as in the small Anatolian town of Safranbolu. Crafts and Craftsmen of the Middle East is essential reading for all those interested in the history of the culture and society of artisans, craftsmen and workers in the Islamic Mediterranean lands."--Jacket
Bread from the lion's mouth : artisans struggling for a livelihood in Ottoman cities( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The newly awakened interest in the lives of craftspeople in Turkey is highlighted in this collection, which uses archival documents to follow Ottoman artisans from the late 15th century to the beginning of the 20th. The authors examine historical changes in the lives of artisans, focusing on the craft organizations (or guilds) that underwent substantial changes over the centuries. The guilds transformed and eventually dissolved as they were increasingly co-opted by modernization and state-building projects, and by the movement of manufacturing to the countryside. In consequence by the 20th century, many artisans had to confront the forces of capitalism and world trade without significant protection, just as the Ottoman Empire was itself in the process of dissolution
Subjects of the Sultan : culture and daily life in the Ottoman Empire by Suraiya Faroqhi( Book )

30 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Suraiya Faroqhi here explores the urban world of the Ottoman lands from the Middle Ages to the early 20th century. She describes the social significance of the popular arts and crafts of the period and examines the interaction among the diverse populations and classes of the Empire, with their varying religions and ethnic backgrounds. Even the banalities associated with the everyday are brought to life: bathing, the market, loving and grieving are all explored for the first time with scholarly rigour and fascination for a disappeared world." "Delving into personal letters, court documents, wills, correspondence with Sufi masters and the travel records of seafarers and traders, Faroqhi has identified a broad range of areas where individuals were able to create a flourishing and vibrant urban civilization, even while politically the Empire was beginning its relentless decline. By presenting a new vision of Ottoman cultural history, Subjects of the Sultan fills a huge gap and will fascinate not only historians of the Middle East but also social historians, students and discerning readers interested in history."--Jacket
The Ottoman Empire : a short history by Suraiya Faroqhi( Book )

42 editions published between 2000 and 2021 in 5 languages and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a concise and colorful style, Suraiya Faroqhi lays out the history of one of the most powerful empires of the Late Middle Ages and the Early Modern era. At its height, the Ottoman Empire spread over three continents and matched the size of the Roman Empire, covering the territories of modern-day Turkey, Iraq, Kuwait, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, and parts of Greece. This text traces the political history of the Ottomans from the 14th century to the dissolution of the empire after World War I and employs a balanced approach that encompasses economic, social, and cultural history. The result is a unique, colorful overview of the Ottoman Empire that depicts soldiers, such as Mehmed II (?the Conqueror?) and the Janissary corps; the wars with Persia, Russia, and Venice; court life in Istanbul, including patronage of the arts; the role of the sultan as defender of Sunni Islam; the tax system; agriculture and trade; life in the cities and the country; the relationship between Europe and the Ottoman Empire; the rise of nationalism; and upheaval during the 19th century." --
Pilgrims and sultans : the Hajj under the Ottomans, 1517-1683 by Suraiya Faroqhi( Book )

30 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pilgrimage to Mecca - the hajj - is a major aspect of the Islamic religion, yet little has been written about its history or of the conditions under which thousands of pilgrims from far-flung regions of the Islamic world were able to travel to the heart of the Arabian peninsula. This pioneering book concentrates on the pilgrimage in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, when Mecca was ruled by the Ottoman sultans
The Ottoman empire as a world power, 1453-1603 by Suraiya Faroqhi( )

33 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 2 of The Cambridge History of Turkey examines the period from the conquest of Constantinople in 1453 to the accession of Ahmed I in 1603. During this period, the Ottoman Empire moved into a new phase of expansion, emerging in the sixteenth century as a dominant political player on the world scene. With territory stretching around the Mediterranean from the Adriatic Sea to Morocco, and from the Caucasus to the Caspian Sea, the Ottomans reached the apogee of their military might in a period seen by many later Ottomans, and historians, as a golden age in which the state was strong, the sultan's might unquestionable, and intellectual life and the arts flourishing. In this volume, leading scholars assess the considerable expansion of Ottoman power and effervescence of the Ottoman intellectual and cultural world. They also investigate the challenges that faced the Ottoman state, particularly in the later period, as the empire experienced economic crises, revolts and drawn-out wars
The Cambridge history of Turkey by Suraiya Faroqhi( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume examines the rise of Turkish power in Anatolia from the arrival of the first Turks at the end of the eleventh century to the fall of Constantinople in 1453. Taking the period as a whole, the volume covers the political, economic, social, intellectual and cultural history of the region as the Byzantine empire crumbled and Anatolia passed into Turkish control to become the heartland of the Ottoman empire. In this way, the authors emphasise the continuities of the era rather than its dislocations, situating Anatolia within its geographic context at the crossroads of Central Asia, the Middle East and the Mediterranean. The world which emerges is one of military encounter, but also of cultural cohabitation, intellectual and diplomatic exchange, and political finesse. This is a state-of-the-art work of reference on an understudied period in Turkish history by some of the leading scholars in the field." --Book Jacket
Men of modest substance : house owners and house property in seventeenth-century Ankara and Kayseri by Suraiya Faroqhi( Book )

29 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a study of two contrasting towns in Anatolia in the seventeenth century. As house ownership was widespread, data concerning value, description, location and ownership of dwellings constitute a valid manner of approaching urban society as a whole. Through her use of documents from the kadi registers of Ankara and Kayseri, Dr Faroqui follows changes in patterns of house ownership over approximately a century. The urban society thus revealed differs from the patterns generally associated with the 'Islamic city' model. Townsmen often bought real estate without selecting a quarter inhabited by their co-religionists, which throws light on the Muslim majority's attitude to the Christian minority. However examples of wealthy and poor quarters were not known. The kadi registers also indicate that despite passing through a period of crisis early in the century, both cultures managed a fairly rapid recovery from this."
Towns and townsmen of Ottoman Anatolia : trade, crafts, and food production in an urban setting, 1520-1650 by Suraiya Faroqhi( Book )

The later Ottoman Empire, 1603-1839( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 3 of The Cambridge History of Turkey traces the history of the later Ottoman Empire from the death of Mehmed III in 1603 to the proclamation of the tanzimat, the administrative reconstruction of the Ottoman state, in 1839. This was a period of relative stability when trade between the empire and Europe flourished and, wartime apart, merchants and pilgrims travelled in relative security. However, despite the emphasis on the sultan's role as defender of the faithful and of social order, tensions did exist between the ruling elite in Istanbul and their provincial subjects. This theme is central to the volume. Other sections focus on religious and political groups, women, trade, rural life and, importantly, music, art and architecture. The history emphasises the political, cultural and artistic accomplishments of the Ottomans in the post-classical period, thus challenging traditional notions that this was a period of stagnation
Living the good life : consumption in the Qing and Ottoman empires of the eighteenth century( )

12 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eighteenth-century consumers of the Qing and Ottoman empires had access to an increasingly diverse array of goods, from home furnishings to fashionable clothes and new foodstuffs. While this tendency was of shorter duration and intensity in the Ottoman world, some urbanites of the sultans' realm did enjoy silks, coffee, and Chinese porcelain. By contrast, a vibrant consumer culture flourished in Qing China, where many consumers flaunted their fur coats and indulged in gourmet dining. 'Living the Good Life', edited by Elif Akcetin and Suraiya Faroqhi explores how goods furthered the expansion of social networks, alliance-building between rulers and regional elites, and the expression of elite, urban, and gender identities. The scholarship in the present volume highlights the recently emerging "material turn" in Qing and Ottoman historiographies and provides a framework for future research
A cultural history of the Ottomans : the imperial elite and its artefacts by Suraiya Faroqhi( Book )

12 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ottoman Empire was more than a center of military and economic activity; it was a vivid and flourishing cultural realm. The artefacts and objects remaining from all corners of this vast empire tell us a great deal about the everyday concerns of the Ottomans. In this book, Faroqhi, a leading historian on the Ottoman Empire, has selected the most revealing, surprising and striking examples of the artefacts which illuminate the lesser-known cultural and artistic world of the Ottomans. Each image reproduced in full color is deftly linked to the latest historiography, and the social, political and economic implications of her selections are never forgotten. In Faroqhi's hands, the objects become ways to learn more about trade, gender and socio-political status. They open an enticing window onto the variety and color of everyday life; from the Sultan's court, to the peasantry and slavery. Amongst its luxuriant faiences and etchings, its sofras and carpets, "A Cultural History of the Ottomans" is essential reading for all students of the Ottoman Empire and its material culture."
