Southeastern Europe under Ottoman Rule, 1354-1804

Southeastern Europe under Ottoman Rule, 1354-1804 provides an over-all picture of the least studied and most obscured part of Balkan history, the Ottoman period. The book begins with the early history of the Ottomans and with their establishment in Europe, describing the basic Muslim and Turkish features of the Ottoman state. The author goes on in subsequent sections to show how these features influenced every aspect of life in the European lands administered directly by the Ottomans (the "core" provinces) and left a permanent mark on states that were vassals of or paid tribute to the empire.

Whether dealing with the "core" provinces of Rumelia or with the vassal and tribute-paying states (Moldavia, Wallachia, Transylvania, and Dubrovik), the author offers fresh insights and new interpretations, as well as a wealth of information on Balkan political, economic, and social history not available elsewhere. The appendixes include lists of dynasties and rulers with whom the Ottomans dealt, as well as data for the House of Osman and some of the grand viziers; a chronology of major military campaigns, peace treaties, and territory gained and lost by the Ottoman Empire in Europe from 1354 to 1804; and glossaries of geographical names and foreign terms.

Reviews

"A useful, thought-provoking book . . . an excellent foundation for developing new approaches and for giving a new impetus and direction to the study of Southeastern Europe."—The American Historical Review

Endorsements

"."An interpretation of southeastern Europe under Ottoman rule from which few will fail to learn. As always, [Sugar] brings a fresh view to familiar material, and fresh material to familiar issues . . . his book is far more than simply a 'welcome addition to the field.' It is a unique interpretation of the entire Ottoman experience in the Balkans."—Slavic Review
