A History of the Turks: From the Earliest Period to the Present Time
The author intended this book to be a concise yet comprehensive history of the Ottoman Empire. He begins with the decline of the Byzantine Empire. He credits the Russo-Turkish War to the increased aggression of the Russians in the preceding century. The author especially focuses on international relations and Turkey's recent history, particularly Russian intentions and the ways in which British foreign policy affected certain outcomes.
