Istanbul and the Civilization of the Ottoman Empire (Centers of Civili. ON TUESDAY, MAY 29, 1453, in the early hours of the morning, the vast armies encamped outside the walls of Constantinople launched their final general assault.

On Tuesday, May 29, 1453, the young Sultan Mehemmed, known to history as “the Conqueror,” launched the final assault against the walls of Constantinople and added that imperial capital, as coping stone; to the Empire that his fathers had conquered. As the Sultan’s Imam intoned the Muslim creed within the walls of Hagia Sophia, the Greek cathedral become a Turkish mosque, and the curtain went up on a new era. In this, the ninth volume of The Centers of Civilization Series, Bernard Lewis describes the city and its civilization in the great age of the Ottoman Sultanate, between the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries.

Under the Ottomans, the city once again became the center of a vest empire and of a flourishing civilization. The conquerors did not destroy the captured Christian city, but took care to preserve and embellish; they added four Muslim minarets to Hagia Sophia, built many fine mosques and palaces of their own, and transformed the shrunken remnant of the Byzantine city into a new and splendid imperial capital.

The great new Muslim city of Istanbul which they created became a center of cultural as well we political life. It was the gateway between East and West, the place where Asia and Europe clashed and blended. It was the seat of the Sultans and the Grand Viziers, of the government of the Ottoman Empire. No less interesting than the concepts of government and the Muslim religion practiced by the Ottoman Turks were the imperial place and household and the people of the city.

Mr. Lewis relies upon the first-hand accounts of Turkish historians and poets and European travelers, thus enabling the reader to see the city, its people, and their life through the eyes of contemporary participants and observers.

It was a well written book. I learned a lot. However, the focus was just not exactly what I was looking for. I guess I was looking for something more about the Byzantine/Ottoman Empires than just Istanbul. (I know; the title "Istanbul" should have been a clue).

I did enjoy the book. enough so, that I'm thinking of ordering one of his other books on the Middle East
Akinonris

Lewis is the most erudite middle east scholar.
Dagdage
He is one of the leading western experts on Ottoman Empire. The book is organized and written beautifully. I believe anyone who wants to have a serious opinion of Ottomans HAS TO read this book.
Gravelblade
He wrote on Turkey for nearly half a century. He also wrote on Middle-East as well but his real expertise is Turkey I believe. in every book of his he zooms into a subject (Turkey) and tells the story like in his other books with more detail. So if you already read one of his books on Turkey or Ottomans you dont need to read this one.
