Author: 

Norman, York

Credentials: 

Associate Professor of History, State University of New York, Buffalo

The rise of Ottoman Sarajevo in the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries is emblematic of a unified new Muslim community whose conversion to Islam and booming social and economic growth unified both the city and its hinterland. Primarily based on a wide array of Ottoman administrative sources, this monograph builds on earlier studies of Sarajevo and other Ottoman cities to analyze the critical social and economic factors behind these developments.

Italia Rediviva: A Social and Cultural History of Italy, 1740-1900

Author: 

Kent, Neil

Credentials: 

Cambridge University

This book seeks to provide a readable history, rich in both anecdotes and statistics, for students and a wide reading public who are interested in Italy in a period of history which - while it has been widely examined with respect to the Risorgimento as a positive and progressive movement which united Italy and enabled it to enter the modern world – has failed to consider Italy's multiplicity of cultures, art, architecture and societies. The period from 1750-1900, however, is neglected.
