Description - Between Two Worlds by Cemal Kafadar
This text offers a complex look at the Ottoman period. The analysis of medieval as well as modern historiography from the perspective of the cultural historian demonstrates how ethnic, tribal, linguistic, religious and political affiliations were all at play in the struggle for power in Anatolia and the Balkans during the late-middle ages. The book looks at the rise of the Ottoman Empire - the longest-lived political entity in human history - showing the transformation of a tiny frontier enterprise into a centralized imperial state that saw itself as both leader of the world's Muslims and heir to the the Eastern Empire.
