A Traveller's History of Turkey

Product Details


Stoneman gives a spare but lively overview of the country that stands as the historic meeting place of East and West. He concisely reviews Turkey's past history, from prehistoric Anatolia, the Hittite age, the Persian conquest, the rule of Alexander the Great, the impact of Rome, the Byzantine and Ottoman empires, and the Ataturk years, to modern-day Turkey. The book helps the visitor make sense of the country against the background of its diverse heritage. Appended are a chronology of major events and battles; a list of native rulers; recommended further reading; and a gazetteer, which is cross-referenced to the main text and highlights sites, towns, and places of historical significance. Illustrated with maps and line drawings, this will be a valuable companion for visitors seeking to learn about this fascinating country. Recommended for general collections.-- Susan Fifer Canby, National Geographic Soc. Lib., Washington, D.C.
