Editorial Reviews

"Colin Imber has expanded and updated his masterly survey of the Ottoman state down to the mid-seventeenth century to take account of important recent developments in the field, and to add a lucid account of the labyrinthine Ottoman taxation system. He has produced a valuable and informative study which manages to combine real in-depth insights into the institutions and the remarkably 'other' power structures of the Ottoman empire with an vigorous and often pithy style which wears its learning lightly. A must for all actual and wanna-be Ottomanists." -- Colin Heywood, University of Hull, UK "Colin Imber's book remains the best overview of the early Ottoman institutions. The updates and the addition of a new chapter on taxation make it even better." -- Gabor Agoston, Georgetown University, USA, co-author of the Encyclopedia of the Ottoman Empire.
