This course is a historical survey of Islam's most successful empire. At its height in the 16th century, the empire stretched from Budapest to Baghdad and was one of the world's superpowers. Founded in the 14th century, it survived until World War I. The Ottoman Empire provides a model for a strong, centralized Islamic state, and the role of Islam in its political, social, and economic institutions will be discussed. Special emphasis will be placed on the Empire's final century and the rise of nationalism in the region.
