Course Detail: O_OTTMN - Ottoman Empire - 400 Years of the Islamic Ummah: Precurser to Globalization?

The Ottoman Empire was one of the largest and longest-living empires in modern history, going back to its founding around 1307 and lasting to 1919, with its apogee under Suleiman the Magnificent (1520 to 1566). We explore the factors of its success and ultimate downfall: the unifying factor of Islam, but also tolerance of diverse ethnic and religious groups. We will delve into the political, economic, social, and cultural life of the empire to provide an understanding of modern Middle East history. Suggested book: A History of the Ottoman Empire, Douglas A. Howard, ISBN 9780521727303.
