    1. Very insightful and interesting read on the Ottoman Empire. If you are interested in history you might want to check this book out.

    2. I can never get enough of The Ottoman empire. I would do anything to live through those days rather than today.

    3. He is THE authority in the history of Ottoman Empire; his books are great sources for those who want to know more about Ottomans.

    4. This book is about the first 300 years of the Ottoman Empire (The Classical Age 1300 -1600). The book is organized in an unusual way in that; a broad overview of the chronological events of the first 300 years of the Empire is given without going into too much detail (Part I). However, where this book really shines is in the treatment of the organization of the Ottoman State (Part II), Economic and Social Life (Part III), and finally, Religion and Culture (Part IV).Inalcık explains that the ear [...]

    5. Prof. Halil did an amazing job with this book. Walking throughout the life of the Ottoman empire while exposing the political, social, economical and commercial aspects of the 800 years empire. The book is full of informative and interesting facts, mentioned in an objective way. The sources are well recorded and the transition between chapters is well-structured.

    6. Halil Inalcik has written an interesting, if basic, history on the Ottoman Empire. The book is broken up into four parts, being an outline on Ottoman History, the inner workings of the state, the economic and social realities within the Empire and the intricacies of Ottoman religious and cultural practices. These three parts provide an adequate, if brief, understanding of how historians think the Ottoman Empire functioned. This book is fairly short, but provides interesting details on this once [...]

    7. مرجع جيّد لتاريخ الدولة العثمانية، يقع في ٣٧٦ صفحة و يحتوي على ١٩ فصلمن بدايات أصول الدولة العثمانية و مراحل تطورها من إمارة إلى امبراطوريّة و توطيدها و امتيازاتها ( اعتبارًا بأنها قوّة عالميّة ) إلى انحدار الدولة و بروز السلالة العثمانية و الوصول إلى العرش و في الفصول الأخي [...]

    8. مدخل ممتاز لتاريخ الدولة العثمانية بكافة مجالاتها.اخترت متعمدا ألا اقرأ لكتب التاريخ التقليدية - المحسوبة على الدين - نظرا لافتقار الكثير منها للموضوعية والمنطق.الامبراطورية العثمانية دولة حدودية نشأت على الأطراف فتوسعت واتخذت من الجهاد راية لها. وأصبحت فيما بعد دولة عظمى [...]

    9. The history of Ottoman Empire as an Islamic Caliphate has always been recounted numerous times. However, personally I feel most times the stories told did not do just to the history when only a small part of the history is being told and more often than not, only a biased account is being told. Halil Inalcik divides the book in a few sections. He started by giving the chronology of the Ottoman Empire, beginning in the 13th century when the Tartar army invaded Baghdad. He then touches on every as [...]

    10. دراسة التاريخ (ليس مجرد قراءته) اساسية لفهم الحاضر و استشراف المستقبل. البحث عن كتاب يسرد بموضوعية و دون انحياز الحقبة الكبيرة للدولة العثمانية (القرن 14 الى القرن 19) لم يكن سهلا. فهنالك عدة كتب عن هذا الموضوع, و لكن يعيب معظمها اقحام الكاتب لرأيه الشخصي أو توجهه الديني في مختلف [...]

    11. I started reading this book a year ago expecting it to follow the British or American style in writing history. Unfortunately, the book is similar to most Arabic history books. The first chapters are divided based on periods while the following chapters focus on areas like commerce, agriculture, education and so forth. Even though I found the style of the book as well as the printing features difficult to follow, I was shocked to know how complicated & well - organized the different systems [...]

    12. Kitabın 56 ve 57 sayfasında üç paragraflık bir "Osmanlı neden yıkıldı"yı açıklayan bir özet var ki sırf bunun için bile bu kitap okunmalıdır. Bu kadar kısa bir içerik, bu kadar dolu bir anlatım. Bunu yapmak için ancak Halil İnalcık olmalısınız.Buyrun şuradan:

    13. كتاب جميل , فيه دراسة للتاريخ العثماني من كافة الجوانب , السياسية و العلمية و الإجتماعية و الأقتصادية , هكذا يجب أن يدرس التاريخ لأن كل تغير في جانب يؤثر في الباقيين و قد أفلح الكاتب في الربط فيما بينهم و لكن يعيب الكتاب انه ممل قليل لأنه أكاديمي جدا كما يعيبه ذكر التواريخ بالم [...]

    14. In many ways this is the quintessential source on Ottoman history. Perfect for beginners such as myself and also very useful for more advanced researchers or experts. I'm glad to have read it.

    15. Un tom masiv, al unui reputat istoric turc, despre epoca clasică a Imperiului Otoman (1300-1600).Ce este foarte interesant aici este că autorul trece rapid peste cronologia propriu-zisă, pe care o lasă altor studii, pentru a detalia societatea otomană propriu-zisă, de la aristocrație la țărănime și robi, de la legislație la religie și fanatismul religios, de la rutele comerciale, comerțul internațional și rețeaua de drumului.O societate foarte complexă, dezvoltată, aflată în [...]

    16. الكاتب تركي نعم، لكن حقيقة لم ألمس أي تحيز. قرأت الكتاب بكل اهتمام وتركيز. كنت أظن الدولة العثمانية لا تختلف كثيرا عن الفارسية، لكني كنت مخطئاً جداً فالعثمانيون أطور وأذكى بأشواط من الفرس. هذا لا يعني أني أحترمهم فلم يمر عقد بدون مذبحة على يدهم. بالرغم من ذلك لم أستطع إلا أن أش [...]

    17. It is an achievement to compress so much knowledge in so few pages while being critical and avoiding final conclusive judgements. Obviously, the book lacked in details but it was just meant to provide the reader with enough directions of Ottoman history and society to read further. I especially liked last sections on religion and society and the brief analysis regarding reasons of Ottoman decline and rise of fanaticism.

    18. It's got a good bit of information, but, man!, is it dry. Also, I'm not wild about the way it's organized: each section covers the whole period (founding through the beginning of the 17th Century) in chronological order, then the next section starts over again. This probably works well if you're looking at how the institutions of the empire developed, but makes it hard to get a picture it as a whole at any particular time.

    19. This book is rather detailed and structured. So if one reads it in order to figure out how things really worked in the Ottoman Empire, one will have all questions answered. There are however no elements of fiction added to it. So if one is seeking infotainment, this book might not be the right choice.

    20. يتكلم الكتاب عن تاريخ و تطور الحياة الإجتماعية في الدولة العثمانية.

    21. Πολύ κατατοπιστικό και ενημερωτικό βιβλίο. Αποκαθιστά την αλήθεια και γκρεμίζει ποικίλους "μύθους".Καλοδιορθωμένη η ελληνική έκδοση με ελάχιστες αβλεψίες σε σύγκριση με άλλα βιβλία.

    22. كتاب جيد كبداية في قراءة تاريخ الدولة العثمانية لكن كثرة تفاصيله وعدم تقسيمه لفترات تاريخية محددة دفعاني للملل

    23. كتاب جيد جدا كمدخل الى تاريخ الدولة العثمانية. يتناول أصول العثمانيين و نشأة الدولة و انحدارها. يلقي الضوء على الحياة الدينية، السياسية، الاقتصادية و الإجتماعية.
