This major contribution to Ottoman history is now published in paperback in two volumes: the original single hardback volume (1994) has been widely acclaimed as a landmark in the study of one of the most enduring and influential empires of modern times. The authors provide a richly detailed account of the social and economic history of the Ottoman region, from the origins of the Empire around 1300 to the eve of its destruction during World War One. The breadth of range and the fullness of coverage make these two volumes essential for an understanding of contemporary developments in both the Middle East and the post-Soviet Balkan world. The text of volume one is by Halil Inalcik, covering the period 1300-1600. The second volume, written by Suraiya Faroqhi, Bruce McGowan, Donald Quataert and Sevket Pamuk, continues the story to 1914. Each volume examines developments in population, trade, transport, manufacturing, land tenure and the economy, and extensive apparatus and bibliographic information is provided for students and others wishing to pursue the subject in more detail. Both volumes will be fundamental to any future discussion of any aspect of Ottoman history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Hardly an aspect of this highly researched work will be free of controversy. Therein lies its strength. A `must' for graduate students of Ottoman and world history, it is likely to generate much new scholarship..." The Historian
"...a valuable and useful compendium of information, analysis, and bibliographies." Canadian Journal of History
"This monumental work will long command serious study by all who seek to understand its vast subject. Not only a synthesis, this volume also presents important new analyses of important topics....this work will long serve specialists and non-specialists alike in their efforts to learn more about Ottoman economic history." Turkish Studies Association Bulletin
"For years to come, this volume will be the standard reference work on the economic and social history of the Ottoman Empire....This work will require both stamina and determination from the reader, but its rewards are not to be found elsewhere." Choice
"...the authors establish Ottoman social and economic history as a cohesive subject over six centuries and several continents." Middle East Quarterly
"This monumental volume....presents a richly detailed account of the Ottoman social and economic world from new archival materials and the most recent studies. In four sections, each by an authority, developments in population, trade, transport, and manufacturing, land tenure, and the economy are analyzed....Certain to become the standard reference work, this book is strongly recommended for Ottoman historians, libraries, and advanced undergraduates." Robert Lembright, History
"This great encyclopedia of a book contains a summary of the life-time scholarship of four of the most distinguished historians of the Ottoman Empire....the book's stated task is to provide an overview of the economic and social history of the territories governed by a world empire that expanded, changed, and contracted during four centuries....the authors provide a great deal of new information, as well as a summary of much of their own earlier work." Journal of Interdisciplinary History
"This volume is bound to become a fixture on university library shelves and is essential for any historian working on, or interested in, the Ottoman Empire. Ten years in the making and quite ambitious in scope, it strives to cover the social and economic history of the Ottoman Empire over six centuries. That it does so successfully for the most part, is to the credit of the authors of its individual sections." Journal of Middle East Studies
"Hardly an aspect of this highly researched work will be free of controversy. Therein lies its strength. A "must" for graduate students of Ottoman and world history, it is likely to generate much new scholarship both pro and con." The Historian
"...this volume is a monumental achievement, richly deserving of the central place it will occupy in the literature....there is much that is new here, particularly in its incorporation of recent primary data from a remarkable variety of sources....It is virtually a primary source in itself....the study is of enormous value." Madeline C. Zilfi, American Historical Review
