A wise, funny, and captivating ode to the classic automobile.

An Ottoman Century: The District of Jerusalem in the 1600s (repost)

An Ottoman Century: The District of Jerusalem in the 1600s (S U N Y Series in Medieval Middle East History) by Dror Zeevi
State University of New York Press | August 1, 1996 | English | ISBN: 0791429164 | 278 pages | PDF | 4 MB

"This is a truly outstanding book; it is very interesting, in fact, fascinating. The author effectively weaves theory with evidence from the District of Jerusalem into a smooth, convincing, and very readable narrative. The debate over the nature of the 'Islamic city' is innovative and brings the data from Jerusalem to bear on the general picture, favoring a middle-of-the-road interpretation between the 'localist' and the 'universal Islamic' views. Ze'evi's discussion of the emergence of an Ottoman-Palestinian power elite (he prefers military-governing elite) is enlightening with regard to processes that took place during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in the Arab provinces of the Ottoman Empire.
