A history of the Ottoman Empire by Douglas A Howard( Book )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Covering the full history of the Ottoman Empire, from its genesis in post-Mongol Eurasia to its dissolution after the Great War in Europe, this book takes a holistic approach, considering the Ottoman worldview--what it was, how it came together, and how it fell apart. Douglas A. Howard stresses the crucial role of the Ottoman sultans and their extended household, discusses the evolution of the empire's fiscal model, and analyzes favorite works of Ottoman literature, emphasizing spirituality, the awareness of space and time, and emotions, migration, violence, disease, and disaster. Following how people spent their time, their attitudes towards authority, how they made their money, and their sense of humor and sense of beauty, this illustrated textbook is an essential resource for graduate, and advanced undergraduate, courses on the history of the Ottoman Empire, the Middle East, Islamic history, and the history of Eastern Europe. The book includes over eighty illustrations, maps and textboxes"--Publisher's description
Das Osmanische Reich 1300-1924 by Douglas A Howard( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in German and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieser Band bietet eine vollständige Darstellung des Osmanischen Reiches von seinen Anfängen im nachmongolischen Eurasien bis zu seiner Auflösung nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg. Dabei wählt er einen ganzheitlichen Ansatz und berücksichtigt die osmanische Perspektive - was dieses Reich war, wie es entstand und wie es zerfiel. Douglas A. Howard hebt die entscheidende Rolle der Osmanensultane und ihres erweiterten Hausstandes hervor, erläutert die Entwicklung des reichsweiten Finanzsystems und analysiert besonders beliebte Werke der osmanischen Literatur. Besonders akzentuiert werden die Spiritualität, das Raum-und Zeitempfinden, Gefühlsgeschichte, Migration, Gewalt, Krankheit, Seuchen und Katastrophen. Das mit über 80 Abbildungen, Karten und Textkästen ausgestattete Sachbuch stellt dar, wie die Menschen in osmanischer Zeit ihren Tag verbrachten, sich zur Obrigkeit stellten, ihr Geld verdienten und ihren Sinn für Humor wie auch ihr Schönheitsgefühl bekundeten
