GOD'S SHADOW: Sultan Selium, His Ottoman Empire, and the Making of the Modern World
The history of the Ottoman Empire has for centuries been distorted, misrepresented, and suppressed in the West. Makhail powerfully recasts ottoman history, telling the story of Ottoman world conquest through the dramatic biography of Sultan Selim. Selim--known to his subjects as "God's Shadow on Earth'--fostered a religiously plural society, encouraged learning and philosophy.
