At the crossroads of Europe, Africa, and the Middle East
Ottoman Borderlands brings together articles by prominent scholars to fill a large gap in Ottoman studiesthe study of the borderlands. Despite the pressing power of the central government, the frontier provinces and the semiautonomous borderlands were cultural-social units with their own identities and their own internal dynamics. While the core provinces were more Ottoman, Islamic, and Turkish-speaking, the borderlands were culturally, religiously, and linguistically more heterogeneous, as well as more politically autonomous.
Kemal Karpat is professor of history at the University of WisconsinMadison, editor of the International Journal of Turkish Studies, and author of many books including Studies on Ottoman History and The Politicization of Islam. Robert Zens is a Ph.D. candidate in Ottoman history and a lecturer in Modern Middle East History at the University of WisconsinMadison. His publications include a study of Pasvanoglu Osman Pasha and the Ottoman provincial notables.
