Making Big Money in 1600 by Nelly Hanna
Book DescriptionNelly Hanna's work challenges the standard perceptions about Middle East society and economy of the seventeenth century. Both novel in its approach and information, this book's central theme revolves around the rise of an indigenous form of capitalism existing as early as the 1600s. Making Big Money in 1600 examines the reemergence of the economic sector and its complex influences on social conditions during this time. By examining the life and work of Ismail Abu Taqiyya, Hanna traces the relationship between economic activities and culture.

Artisan Entrepreneurs in Cairo (1600-1800) and Early Modern Capitalism, Hardback (June 2011)
Deftly synthesizing a wide range of economic and historical theory, Hanna reinvigorates the current scholarship on early Ottoman history and provides a persuasive challenge to the largely shallow perception of artisans' role in Egypt's economy.
Armenian Artist in Ottoman Egypt, Hardback (April 2008)
Yuhanna al-Armani has been known by historians of Coptic art as an eighteenth-century Armenian icon painter who lived and worked in Ottoman Cairo. This work gives an account of his life that looks beyond his artistic production to place him firmly in the social, political, and economic milieu in which he moved and flourished as a painter.

In fine detail, Hanna explores economic influences on culture during periods of plenty and poverty during the first three centuries of Ottoman rule. She unveils a fully-fledged Cairene middle-class culture that bridges the gap between the salons (majalis) of the elite and the common people.
