The Government of the Ottoman Empire in the Time of Suleiman the Magnificent
Harvard University Press, 1913 - 349 Seiten
The author defines the character of the Ottoman state in general and then interprets the state through various lenses: the state interpreted as a slave family (that is, as a macrocosmic family which includes slaves), as a missionary enterprise and an educational system, as an army, as a nobility and a court, and as a government structure. The parallel ruling institution of Islam is also discussed, and then the formal Turkish state is compared and contrasted with the religious institution. The synthesis of each of these interpretations allows for a more complete and unique understanding of the function of the Turkish state. The appendices contain a translation of an important Italian source from 1534, as well as a pamphlet in Italian from 1537 by Junis Bey and Alvise Gritti. There is also a partial table of contents of Suleiman's edicts, a comparison of the Mogul government of India and Suleiman's government, and an appendix for the origins of Ottoman government ideas and a summary of it in the sixteenth century.
