This book is a comparative study of imperial organization and longevity that assesses Ottoman successes as well as failures against those of other empires with similar characteristics. Barkey examines the Ottoman Empire's social organization and mechanisms of rule at key moments of its history, emergence, imperial institutionalization, remodeling, and transition to nation-state, revealing how the empire managed these moments, adapted, and averted crises and what changes made it transform dramatically. The flexible techniques by which the Ottomans maintained their legitimacy, the cooperation of their diverse elites both at the center and in the provinces, as well as their control over economic and human resources were responsible for the longevity of this particular 'negotiated empire'. Her analysis illuminates topics that include imperial governance, imperial institutions, imperial diversity and multiculturalism, the manner in which dissent is handled and/or internalized, and the nature of state society negotiations.

Die Musealisierung der Migration hat Konjunktur. Mit kritischem Blick untersucht dieses Buch nun erstmals Formen und Funktionen der verstärkten Repräsentation von Migration in Museen und Ausstellungen. Wie wird die multikulturelle Gesellschaft inszeniert? Welche Interessen und Konflikte treten dabei zutage? Was lässt sich aus Projekten in Übersee für Deutschland und Europa lernen? Mit der Diskussion solcher Fragen leistet die Studie, die sich gleichermaßen an Kulturwissenschaftler, Kulturpolitiker und Museumsmacher wendet, einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Debatte um Geschichtspolitik und Erinnerung in der Einwanderungsgesellschaft.

Suraiya Faroqhi schildert knapp, kenntnisreich und lebendig die Geschichte eines der mächtigsten Reiche des späten Mittelalters und der Neuzeit, das noch zu Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts das gesamte Gebiet der heutigen Staaten Türkei, Irak, Syrien, Libanon, Israel sowie Teile Griechenlands umfaßte. Die Darstellung folgt der Chronologie der politischen Geschichte vom 14. Jahrhundert bis zur Auflösung des Reiches nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg und bezieht dabei die Geschichte von Wirtschaft, Gesellschaft und Kultur überall gleichwertig ein. Hieraus ergibt sich ein ungewöhnlich farbiges Bild vom Osmanischen Reich: Die bisherige Vorstellung von einer erstarrten osmanischen Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft, die kaum mit der abendländischen, europäischen verflochten war, muß revidiert werden. Einzelne gesellschaftliche Gruppen und Provinzen suchten im eigenen Interesse mit Nachdruck den Anschluß an Europa. Warum der Vielvölkerstaat trotz dieser Bemühungen und trotz seiner – angesichts der heutigen Konflikte ganz erstaunlichen – religiösen Toleranz zerbrach, macht die Autorin eindringlich deutlich.

Wodurch zeichnen sich Imperien aus? Welche Gefahren birgt eine imperiale Ordnung? Und welche Chancen bietet sie? Mit einem Mal sind diese Fragen nicht mehr nur von historischem Interesse. Die USA haben inzwischen eine Vormachtstellung inne, die viele für bedrohlich halten. Bestimmen die Politiker in Washington die Regeln, denen der Rest der Welt zu folgen hat? Oder gibt es eine Logik der Weltherrschaft, der auch sie sich beugen müssen? Herfried Münkler zeigt, wie ein Imperium funktioniert und welche Arten von Imperien es in der Vergangenheit gegeben hat. Ein souveräner Gang durch die Geschichte und zugleich die brillante Analyse eines hochaktuellen Themas.

Law and identification transgressed political boundaries in the nineteenth-century Levant. Over the course of the century, Italo-Levantines- elite and common- exercised?a strategy of?resilient hybridity whereby an unintentional form of legal imperialism took root in Egypt.?? This book contributes to a vibrant strand of global legal history that places law and other social structures at the heart of competing imperial projects- British, Ottoman, Egyptian, and Italian among them.?Analysis of the Italian consular?and mixed court cases, and diplomatic records, in Egypt and Istanbul?reveals the complexity of shifting identifications and judicial reform in two parts of the interactive and competitive plural legal regime.?The rich court records?show?that binary relational categories fail to capture the complexity of the daily lives of the residents and courts of the late Ottoman empire.?Over time and acting in their own self-interests, these actors exploited?the plural legal regime.?Case studies in both Egypt and Istanbul explore how identification developed as a legal form of property itself.?

Provincializing the history of the Ottoman Empire, this book provides a critical approach to the projects of ‘modernity’ that took place in the Eastern Mediterranean over the past two centuries. Leaving their mark on this period are; the turmoil of insurgency in Greece and Egypt, a growing intervention of European Powers in Eastern Mediterranean politics, and the unfolding of large reform projects within the administration of the Ottoman Empire. Whilst these developments have prompted enduring debates over Middle Eastern paths of transformation, the case of Cyprus has remained isolated from these discussions, something this book seeks to address. One of the first research monographs to appear in English on Cyprus during the eventful times of the Ottoman ‘long’ 19th century, this book consistently seeks to provide a dialogue between source analyses and theoretical frameworks. Exploring the myriad relationships between this singular locality and the regional – not to say global – dynamics of empire, trade and social change at that time, A Provincial History of the Ottoman Empire will be of interest to students and scholars with an interest in the Middle East and Modern History.

While Turkey has grown as a world power, promoting the image of a progressive and stable nation, several choices in policy have strained its relationship with the East and the West. Providing historical, social, and religious context for this behavior, the essays in Democracy, Islam, and Secularism in Turkey examine issues relevant to Turkish debates and global concerns, from the state's position on religion to its involvement with the European Union. Written by experts in a range of disciplines, the chapters explore the toleration of diversity during the Ottoman Empire's classical period; the erosion of ethno-religious heterogeneity in modern, pre-democratic times; Kemalism and its role in modernization and nation building; the changing political strategies of the military; and the effect of possible EU membership on domestic reforms. The essays also offer a cross-Continental comparison of "multiple secularisms," as well as political parties, considering especially Turkey's Justice and Development Party in relation to Europe's Christian Democratic parties. Contributors tackle critical research questions, such as the legacy of the Ottoman Empire's ethno-religious plurality and the way in which Turkey's assertive secularism can be softened to allow greater space for religious actors. They address the military's "guardian" role in Turkey's secularism, the implications of recent constitutional amendments for democratization, and the consequences and benefits of Islamic activism's presence within a democratic system. No other collection confronts Turkey's contemporary evolution so vividly and thoroughly or offers such expert analysis of its crucial social and political systems.
