This volume presents research on craft workers within and outside the guild structure from the modern and contemporary Mediterranean world. Several of the essays are based on research relating to the late sixteenth-century Ottoman Empire while other studies deal with traditional style crafts in twentieth-century Turkey and Egypt such as tanning or the manual production of copper vessels where Ottoman craft traditions were still of significance.
