History of Ottoman Architecture by Godfrey Goodwin
Book DescriptionThis survey of Ottoman architecture treats the subject chronologically and within its historical perspective, making reference to Byzantine, Persian and Selcuk examples. There is a discussion of the effects of conquests, religions and social organization, and alongside the descriptions of mosques are studies of the layout and function of the buildings which came to be grouped around the mosques - schools, baths, hostels, kitchens, fountains, mausolea, and shops. Seeking to appeal to those interested in Islamic art as well as architectural history, buildings are described with a minimum of technical terminology. A glossary of Turkish words is provided and there is a chronological table listing Ottoman rulers and historical events.

Janissaries, Paperback (April 2006)
From the fifteenth to the sixteenth century, the janissaries were the scourge of Europe. Their loyalty to their corps was infinite, as the Ottomans conquered the Balkans as far as the Danube, and Syria, Egypt and Iraq. Who were they? Why were they an elite? Why did they decline and what was their end? This book aims to answer these questions.
