Reseña del editor:

Time and time again from the seventeenth century onward observers predicted the collapse of the Ottoman Empire; yet it outlived all its rivals. As late as 1910 it straddled three continents and was still recognised as an imperial dynasty during the peace-making that followed the Great War.

Alan Palmer offers a fascinating overview of the Ottoman Empire's decline, from the failure to take Vienna in 1683 to the abolition of the Sultanate in 1922 by Mustafa Kemal. It deals with constantly recurring problems - vying secular and religious authority; acceptance or rejection of Western ideas; greedy neighbours; population movements; and the strength or weakness of successive sultans.

The twenty-first century has put the problems that faced the later sultans back upon the world agenda. Places such as Basra and Mosul have again made headlines; likewise Libya and the Lebanon, Armenia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. As Alan Palmer shows, the Ottoman past retains a deep and troubling relevance for all of us.

'A scholarly, readable and balanced history.' Independent

Biografía del autor:

Alan Palmer was head of History at Highgate School, London for nineteen years before retiring early to concentrate on historical writing and research. He is the author of more than three dozen works: narrative histories; biographies; historical dictionaries ir reference books. His main interests are in the Napoleonic era, nineteenth century diplomacy, the First World War and Eastern Europe, although his Northern Shores is a history of the Baltic Sea and its peoples from earliest times to 2004. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 1980. Of Alan Palmer, Sir John Keegan has written, ' Alan Palmer writes the sort of history that dons did before ''accessible'' became an academic insult. It is cool, rational, scholarly, literate.'Faber Finds is reissuing a number of his titles: Alexander I, The Gardeners of Salonika, The Chancelleries of Europe, The East End, The Decline and Fall of the Ottoman Empire, The Lands Between, Metternich, Twilight of the Habsburgs.
