Kitap Hakkında

The present volume “Seapower, Technology and Trade – Studies in Turkish Maritime History” seeks primarily to present, a heterogeneous and extensive assessment of the state-of-the-art in international maritime history, perceived from various points of view, giving priority to the analysis and interpretation of new archival documentation  that was previously unknown, or little explored. The aim of this publication is thus to add, as much as possible, to the general body of knowledge in global maritime history, and to contribute to a substantial rellection on Turkish maritime history.

A collection of fifty-seven articles offers various written and iconographic sources, with explanatory texts, both of European and non-European origin, with a natural accent in micro-history studies. The chronological approach that was followed was rather broad, affording some emphasis on the lower medieval period, and the early modern and contemporary era. Complementary studies explore earlier periods where the foundations of seapower, supported by advances in technology and gains in trade, were laid for history in the making.
