Osman's Dream

Etukansi
John Murray Press, 19.7.2012 - 704 sivua

The Ottoman chronicles recount that the first sultan, Osman, dreamt of the dynasty he would found - a tree, fully-formed, emerged from his navel, symbolising the vigour of his successors and the extent of their domains.

This is the first book to tell the full story of the Ottoman dynasty that for six centuries held sway over territories stretching, at their greatest, from Hungary to the Persian Gulf, and from North Africa to the Caucasus.

Understanding the realization of Osman's vision is essential for anyone who seeks to understand the modern world.
