    A great account of Romantic figures of the Ottoman Empire but the writer s brazen orientalism was very apparent which was a put off, enticing methan once to just close the book and park it on the shelf.

  2. says:

    Broad based view of a very complex historical topic I d prob give it 3.5 stars if I could it would ve helped if the pics were in color, but that would ve REALLY made for an expensive book, I m sure
