''A great historical book by Ilber Ortayli on the Ottoman Empire.''

What was the significance of the Ottoman Empire? What kind of lives did people live? What lessons can be learnt from the civilisation that the Ottomans created? What does the Ottoman Empire mean to us today?

One of Turkey's leading historians, Ilber Ortayli, answers all these questions in Discovering the Ottomans, a brilliant set of learned and engaging reflections on the everyday life, legacy and enduring relevance of the Ottomans.

Review :  "Lyrical yet careful, this introduction to the Ottoman reality will soon become a classic of popular history-writing."—T.J. Winter, University of Cambridge.
