Korte omschrijving 📚

About the sad end of dreams of empire, a subject that was not represented accurately in my high school textbooks back in Istanbul. — Orhan Pamuk Remarkably readable, judicious and well-researched — Mark Mazower * Financial Times * A timely and capacious history… compelling and brilliant — Jeremy Seal * Sunday Telegraph * An excellent historian who does a fine job. Impressively sound and fair-minded — Max Hastings * Sunday Times * Eugene Rogan has written a meticulously researched, panoramic, and engrossing history of the final years of the Ottoman Empire. This book is essential reading for understanding the evolution of the modern Middle East and the root causes of nearly all the conflicts that now plague the area. An altogether splendid work of historical writing — Ali Allawi (author of The Occupation of Iraq) A vivid account of the fighting that led to the fall of one of the world’s great empires — Roger Owen, Professor Emeritus of Middle East History, Harvard University Thrilling, superb, and colourful, Eugene Rogan’s Fall of the Ottomans is brilliant storytelling. Filled with flamboyant characters, impeccable scholarship that illuminates the neglected Near Eastern theater of WWI – showing how the Ottomans managed to perform unexpectedly well against the allies – and revelatory analysis that explains the modern Mideast, The Fall of the Ottomans is truly essential but also truly exciting reading — Simon Sebag Montefiore
