Link to Publication

The essays in this volume discuss continuity and change in Bilād al-Shām during the sixteenth century, examining to what extent Egypt and Greater Syria were affected by the transition from Mamluk to Ottoman rule. The topic is explored in a variety of areas: diplomatic relations, histories and historiography, fiscal and agricultural administration, symbolic orders, urban developments, local perspectives, and material culture. To rethink the sixteenth century from a transitional perspective und thus overcome the conventional dynasty centrism in research, Mamlukists and Ottomanists are brought together to shed light on the remarkable sixteenth century, so decisive for the formation of early modern Muslim empires.
