      1448. The Decline & Fall of the Ottoman Empire by Halil Inacik -
      Offers a provocative view of the Empire's decline from the failure to

      Kemal (Attaturk) in 1922 during a revolutionary upsurge in Turkish
      national pride. The narrative contains instances of violent revolt
      and bloody reprisals, such as the massacres of Armenians in 1896, and
      other "ethnic episodes" in Crete and Macedonia. More generally, the
      narrative emphasizes recurring problems: competition between
      religious and secular authority; the acceptance or rejection of
      Western ideas; and the strength or weakness of successive Sultans.
      The book also highlights the special challenges of the early
      twentieth century, when railways and oilfields gave new importance to
      Ottoman lands in the Middle East. Soft cover in brand new never read
