University of Pennsylvania Press, Incorporated, Oct 10, 2007 - History - 93 pages
Written by recipients of the John Freely Fellowship awarded annually through the American Research Institute in Turkey from a major gift from the Joukowsky Family Foundation of New York to honor a celebrated author of travel and history books, this volume focuses particular attention on the city of Istanbul, its history, and institutions during the Ottoman and Republican periods. Chapters by young scholars consider the office of the Ottoman Court Historian, opposing voices during the reign of Sultan Süleyman, naming Turkish Sabbatians, Istanbul's population variables, and changes in Turkish tobacco production.
