9780099994008: Lords of the Horizons : A History of the Ottoman Empire

The Ottoman Empire has exerted a long, strong pull on Western minds and hearts. For over six hundred years the Empire swelled and declined; rising from a dusty fiefdom in the foothills of Anatolia to a power which ruled over the Danube and the Euphrates with the richest court in Europe. But its decline was prodigious, protracted, and total.

Lords of the Horizons charts the Ottoman Empire's swirling history; dramatic, detailed and alive - a journey, and a world all in one.

Review:

"A fascinating read... a perfect companion for anyone who visits Turkey and wants to make sense of it and those countries it once ruled'" ( The Times)

"As plush as a Turkish carpet... Godwin weaves together the threads of barbarism and civilisation with dazzling panache" (Piers Brendon Mail on Sunday)

"So rich, so detailed and so astonishing as to be a book of wonders in itself" (Jan Morris Independent)

"Perhaps the most readable history ever written on anything" ( Time Out)

From the Author:

Love it or hate it - this is the book that changed my life! So if you'd like to know more about it - or about The Janissary Tree, my new thriller set in Ottoman Istanbul - you might want to take a look at jasongoodwin.net.
