MEDIA REVIEWS

In this theoretically and empirically rich account Kent Schull shows how prisons, prisoners, and prison reform fit in the transformation of the Ottoman state in the 19th century. By shedding light on a much neglected aspect of Ottoman state practice, this book significantly improves our understanding of one of the most crucial periods in Ottoman history.' -- Re?at Kasaba, Stanley D. Golub Chair, Professor of International Studies, University of Washington.
