The infamous Ottoman devsirme-the levy and enslavement of young male subjects from the Christian regions of the empire for palace and military service by the Turks-has been traditionally understood as a mechanism of both elite recruitment and Muslim conversion. Here Charles Argo investigates the political and cultural resonance of the act itself; an act that reproduced in spectacle form Ottoman ideologies of dynastic legitimacy and political hegemony amongst its Christian subjects. Viewed thus, the levy transcends its utility as a recruitment mechanism, and becomes an important-even iconic-display of political will that significantly shaped the cultural reality for Balkan peoples under Ottoman rule. A fresh and original look at Ottoman history, this book changes the way we look at the exercise of power in pre-modern empires, and will be essential for all those interested in Ottoman and Middle East studies as well as Christian-Muslim relations, ritual, slavery and conversion.

The Eastern Question, as it was termed by the European Powers in the nineteenth century, was a debate primarily concerned with the issue of ""what to do with the Turk?"". The Ottoman Empire had become known as the ""sick man of Europe"" following its gradual decline since the eighteenth century, and its demise would be highly problematic for the crowned heads of Europe. This unique book focuses on the intellectual and political dynamics of the first Ottoman political opposition in the modern sense, the so-called ""Young Ottomans."" In the process it narrates an alternative version of the Eastern Question as experienced and told by its Eastern observers and critics. Nazan Cicek shows how an important section of the newly-rising semi-autonomous Ottoman Muslim Turkish intelligentsia in the second half of the nineteenth century effectively answered the alternative question of ""what to do with the West?"".

The final years of the Ottoman Empire were catastrophic ones for its non-Turkish, non-Muslim minorities. From 1913 to 1923, its rulers deported, killed, or otherwise persecuted staggering numbers of citizens in an attempt to preserve “Turkey for the Turks,” setting a modern precedent for how a regime can commit genocide in pursuit of political ends while largely escaping accountability. While this brutal history is most widely known in the case of the Armenian genocide, few appreciate the extent to which the Empire’s Assyrian and Greek subjects suffered and died under similar policies. This comprehensive volume is the first to broadly examine the genocides of the Armenians, Assyrians, and Greeks in comparative fashion, analyzing the similarities and differences among them and giving crucial context to present-day calls for recognition.

The origin of the Western military tradition in Greece 750-362 BC is fraught with controversies, such as the date and nature of the phalanx, the role of agricultural destruction and the existence of rules and ritualistic practices. This volume collects papers significant for specific points in debates or theoretical value in shaping and critiquing controversial viewpoints. An introduction offers a critical analysis of recent trends in ancient military history and provides a bibliographical essay contextualizing the papers within the framework of debates with a guide to further reading.
