Welcome to the Ottoman Page.  This corner of the web is dedicated to classical Ottoman history.  For "classical," I take the dates from Halil Inalcik's title, <cite>The Ottoman Empire: The Classical Age (1300-1600)</cite>.<p><p>


I have removed the "books" section since the advent of online booksellers like <a href="http://www.amazon.com/" target="_new">Amazon.com</a> and <a href="http://www.barnesandnoble.com/" target="_new">Barnes & Noble</a> has relegated my hand-made catalog to obsolesence.<p><p>


New links will appear periodically.<p><p>


If you're interested in the Ottoman background of Kosovo, lately in the news, please turn to the "suggested reading" page and take a look at <a href="bibliography.html#kosovo" target="_new">Noel Malcolm's new book</a>.<p><p>


Suggestions for correcting, improving, expanding or updating the page can be e-mailed directly to <a
