A History of the Ottomans

by Professor Fred Anscombe. Produced by Simon Brown, 22nd October 2019

In this podcast Dr Fred Anscombe highlights the vastness of the Ottoman Empire, and explores shared common characteristics of culture and philosophy, and what made them unified as 'Ottoman'. He argues that the common terminology of referring to the Ottomans as Turks is questionable since the empire was so vast. He also explains how the breakdown of the Empire in the Eighteenth Century led to the modernisation of the region.
