Ottoman Bosnia
A History in Peril
Edited by Markus Koller and Kemal H. Karpat
With a preface by Noel Malcolm

Rescuing and preserving a cultural and social legacy

The studies of Bosnia in this volume encompass more than four hundred years of history and offer a broad, multidimensional view of this vital Ottoman territory. Written by native and foreign specialists, these studies evaluate and seek also to rescue and preserve the legacy of the extraordinarily important buildings, manuscripts, and other cultural artifacts destroyed during the war of 1992–1995.

Markus Koller is a research associate at the University of Bern. Kemal H. Karpat is Distinguished Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and the author of more than twenty books, including The Politicization of Islam and Studies on Ottoman History. Noel Malcolm is a senior research fellow at All Souls College, Oxford, and the author of the best-selling books Bosnia: A Short History and Kosovo: A Short History.
