Amazon.com description: Product Description:
While the high culture of the Ottoman Empire has been extensively documented, very little research or writing has taken place on the everyday life of the ordinary people during the centuries of Ottoman rule. Suraiya Faroqhi now fills the gap. This book explores the rich city life of Ottoman times form the Middle Ages to the early twentieth century. Buildings and their social significance, the interaction of peoples and the classes from the varying religions and ethnicities, the arts and crafts and even the banalities associated with everyday life: bathing, the market, loving and grieving, are all explored for the first time with scholarly rigor and a general sense of fascination with a disappeared world.
