This book is written for students of Middle Eastern and Ottoman history, as well as scholars and general readers looking for historical background on the Arab world. It presents a knowledgeable, unbiasedand insightful guide to the diversity and complexity of society in the Arab lands during the centuries between the region s incorporation into the Ottoman Empire and the wrenching socio-political changes of the 19th century. Lucidly written, the book introduces the diverse groups who made up Ottoman Arab society  government officials, merchants and shopkeepers, peasants, religious scholars, women, ethnic and religious minorities. It shows how their fortunes changed during these pivotal centuries and demonstrates how Ottoman rule transformed the region s political, economic, intellectual and religious life.
