Reviews

'An absorbing, monumental story ... a reliable, authoritative account ... a balanced assessment of the Ottomans ... a marvellous achievement, which deserves to provoke widespread debate' -- Jerry Brotton, BBC History magazine 20050701 'A Turkish delight' -- Metro (London) 20050714 'Splendidly written ... Finkel's intimacy with the material makes this the most authoritative narrative history of the empire yet published ... Detailed ... Her narrative focuses on the dynamics of the imperial story ... lively analysis' -- Jason Goodwin, Literary Review 20050701 'History written with a dynamic, modern feel and penetrating gaze' -- Good Book Guide 20050801 'Instructive ... A fine single-volume account of a long and at times complicated period ... Finkel clearly loves her subject' -- The Tablet 20050910 'The freshness of Finkel's history [is] striking. The secret, apart from an irresistible narrative style, is a generous openness to every aspect of Ottoman life and culture ... What has often come across as an impossibly exotic procession of Viziers, Beys and Pashas is here brought vividly home to the reader' -- Michael Kerrigan, The Scotsman 20050924 'Excellent' -- The Times 20050618
