Suleiman the Magnificent (Paperback)
Suleiman's reign as Sultan marked the apogee of Ottoman power. His empire held dominion over three continents, and, populated by more than thirty million inhabitants, prospered under a well-directed and authoritarian economy. In this celebrated book Andr Clot successfully produces both a life of the man and a stimulating popular history of the Ottoman Empire during this period.
Andr Clot (1909-2002) was a French historian and journalist. He lived in Turkey and the Middle East for many years and was an expert on Islam.
