Sieben Jahre in Tibet hA good survey course on theistory of the Ottoman empire It covers 700 years of Operaatio Para Bellum history from the pre ottoman Turkic states all the way to the collapse of the empire and the foundation of the modern republic of Turkey With such a large scope the course does notave time to cover each topic in great depth but what is presented gives you a good introduction to I love this lecturer so I m biased right off the bat but I love Horse a Portrait A Photographer's Life With Horses howe presents Aircraft of World War I 1914 1918 The Essential Aircraft Identification Guide his material It s always interesting and you can telle loves the subject matter I already knew a moderate amount about the Ottoman Empire but this lecture series was still fascinating to me There were so many details I didn t know and Myth Taken Identity he really does a great job of talking about cause and effect trends and keeping you in the mindset of the time I don t know why we don t teach of this in school this empire lasted forever and made auge impact on the world If you want something different this is a great series to listen to Aside from Dr Harl s rapid delivery and immense cast of characters I found this course to be a fascinating look at a transitional time in Amazon.com: The Underwater Photographer eBook: Martin Edge: Kindle Store history as well as a transitional place in the worldthe crossroads between Europe and Asia Turkey is often discounted as a not uite first world country yet it boasts of one of the most successful dominions lasting nearly seven centuriesin some ways extending even into modern timesThese lectures complement Harl s early sets including Byzantium and Barbarians of The Steppes also The Vikings andelp to mesh with lectures series dealing with Western European Growing Marijuana (Idiot's Guides) history After listening to these lectures Iave come to understand WHY the Ottoman Empire was considered the poor man of Europe but understand fully that in many ways its rich legacy The Jane Austen Project has contributed greatly to the western civilization we enjoy todayRecommended especially when Suleiman The Magnificent and Mehmet the Conueror agree on a sale and coupon Very useful overview for someone trying to get the basic narrative of the empire under their belt I also appreciated Harl s commentary on the likely strategic motivations behind various twists and turns in the epic of the empire I see from other reviews that much of Harl s narrative is based on the research of others and that Harlimself may not be a notable authority on the empire Nonetheless Dynamite Doc or Christmas Dad? he does an admirable job of developing key moments in the empire sistory relating them to other developments around the world and challenging many myths I found the discussion of the 19th century especially interesting including the encounter with the Napoleanic conuests the ensuing efforts at reform to catch up to rapidly developing European competitors and then the turmoil that this brought about That part in particular is a great overview of a crucial period of political economic and social transformation certainly of interest to any student of comparative politics I wish this was a bit balanced when it comes to the border region between the Ottoman Empire and Central Europe and the conflicts within Islam This lecture series as good information but it improperly represents the experience of peoples outside of the core of the Ottoman Empire or the minorities throughout the region This is not

To Say That Byzantium 
say that Byzantium ave ruled the Balkans with less conflict or exploitation And it can easily be assumed that the interactions with the with less conflict or exploitation And it can easily be assumed that the interactions with the empire would ave been barbarous but treating the Balkans simply as Western European pawns who became entranced by French ideas of nationalism is disingenuous It raises important challenges to the western classical narrative of istory It also as good coverage of The Young Turks And The Committee and the Committee Union and Progress Though I greatly appreciate the attempt to remain objective and critical I think it crudely covers the Armenian genocide in apologist fashion If not for the wealth of texts on Ottoman istory I would give this a The Elusive Heiress Nancy Drew higher rating but I can t recommend the lectures well this guy really loves talkingIt is a passionate retelling of theistory of the Ottoman empire from the time when first Turkic tribes arrive to the Middle East till Mustafa Kemal abolishes the empire It does not go into a great detail it is sort of repetitive we all Pizarro and the Conuest of Peru have some ide fix and some parasitic words don t we but it is a very good introduction into theistory of that time and placeMr Harl is a wonderful passionate lecturer However I don t think I learned anything particularly new or surprising unlike the course on The Barbarian Empires of the Steppes It was a sort of uick summary of facts about the long Are You There God? It's Me M history of the Ottoman empire a lot of boasting by Mr Harl OK perhaps it is just the self presentation strategy commonly used by the Americans but I find it annoying anywayAlso I think that at times Mr Harl s voice wasoarse Perhaps pauses during the recording would Evan (O'Connor Brothers Vol. 5) have been in order Iave always thought that if you claim to be an expert in the On Hitler's Mountain Overcoming the Legacy of a Nazi Childhood PS history geography literature etc of any country youave to know the language of that country pretty pretty well This apparently is not the case with Kenneth W Harl whose wife is even Turkish and it was a A cristalli liquidi (Italian Edition) huge bug during the entire Audible course of the book His grave mispronounciation of Turkish words names of people or places and phrases was not only incredibly annoying but also createduge misunderstandings and frankly to some odd situations As this was not enough I've Got a Home in Glory Land: A Lost Tale of the Underground Railroad he even tried with Arabic words and names which led to even absurd partsThis is why the pdf was my best friend Due to the mispronounciations due to some mistakes during the audio book and due to the freuent uuhh s and aahh s of the lecturer the audio book was not a pleasant experience at all The pdf albeit in brief and summarise. 18ours 44 minsBy understanding the dramatic story of the Ottoman Empire from its early years as a collection of raiders and conuerors to its undeniable power in the 15th and 16th centuries to its catastrophic collapse in the wreckage of the First World War one can better grasp the current complexities of the Middle East Over the course of these 36 enlightening lectures investigate over 600 years of istory that covers the nature of Ottoman identi. .
The Ottoman EmpireD version presented the necessary information a bit understandablyOtherwise the information during the entire course is interesting especially because it is uick and concise That being said it misses large chunks of Ottoman Dragonsbane history important details of many characters or places or events overlooks lots of facts Instead Harl focuses on what is apparently important toim and Lonestar Sanctuary he does not evenide it for instance on Kanun Sultan S leyman or on Enver Pa a or and Trust Me, I'm Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator here I am actuallyappy about it on Mustafa Kemal Atat rk The last one was the best conclusion possible although spending one uarter of the book on Ottoman Empire talking about Mustafa Kemal is not the greatest choice but let it beThe part I liked the most was the structured and rather objective narrative on the situation with the Ottoman Armenians between 1914 and 1923 He did not directly call it a genocide but Understanding the Black Economy and Black Money in India he did not deny it being a genocide either Ande presented the facts as they were from both sides with both their guilt and innocence although tried to be as brief as possibleHarl also spent some time surprisingly to me on the Balkan nations too Greece of course Romania Serbia Bulgaria Macedonia not North then Which led to a fairly good factology and description of the Balkan Wars and everyone involved in themIn conclusion it is an acceptable studybook for those who are interested in learning a bit about a small part of the major events in the Ottoman Empire from its creation to its dissolution What it lacks is depth amongst all the things I Desperate (Bad Baker Boys, have already mentioned But if you are just starting to learn about one of the greatest empires thatad ever existed it is a good course If you just want to brush up on your knowledge it could Biocentrismo.

This would ultimately result in several unsuccessful attempts at reform throughout the 19th centuryThe Ottoman Empire finally dissolved in 1922 after a series of unsuccessful campaigns in World War I Mustafa Kamal was the one bright spot as Soigner le Sida autrement avec le protocole ICCARRE he led the Turkish defense of Gallipoli and successfully beat back the Greeks who were empowered by the allies to take parts of Turkey for their own The death of the Empire was driven by the sultan signing the treaty of Sevres which allowed the occupation of Constaninople and the partioning of Turkey and the middle East to allied interests Kamal rallied the people tois cause and established a national Turk identity that refused the demands of the treaty and forced renegotiation based on Tubâ va ma'nâ ye shab his defense of Anatolia and Constantinople He is known as Attaturk the father of Turkey One sad event that i was especially interested in was the Armenian genocide Unfortunately the ethnic tensions peaked in WWI as the Ottoman Christian Balkan client states revolted spurred on by the lack of stability and control of the Ottomans Millions of displaced Islamic immigrants were thrown out of the Balkans and were forced back into Anatolia proper The Ottoman government called for the resettlement of the Armenian populations to make way for the displaced Muslim populations in the Balkans The official order never called for mass murder of the ethnic population but it uickly turned into that as Russia pushed its offensive deeper into Turkey during its 1915 to 1916 campaigns The Armenians were thought loyal to Russia so the Ottomans conveniently found a way to eliminate the threat It is a sad end to the Ottoman legacy whichad before enabled Christian and Jewish populations to flourish Overall I found Dr Harl an engaging speaker and able to digest complex topics into easy to understand concepts I would recommend these lectures to anyone wanting to discover the rich and troubling Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid: Rowley Jefferson's Journal (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) history of Asia Minor and modern Turkey The course was perfect for what I needed I knew plenty about the Middle East post 1914 and a decent amount prior to 1258 or so but I wanted to get an overview of whatappened in the interim Obviously this course covers far than that with a specific focus on Asia Minor since it s the center of the Empire and Harl s specific area of studyProfessor Kenneth Harl is my favorite lecturer with The Great Courses and I ve enjoyed each of Rechnen und Textaufgaben - Gymnasium 5.
