Description

A pioneering study of the causes and consequences of the rivalry and collapse of the great Ottoman and Russian empires.

Auteur

Michael A. Reynolds is Assistant Professor of Near Eastern Studies at Princeton University.



Résumé
The fall of the Ottoman and Russian empires irrevocably changed the landscape of the Middle East and Eurasia. Drawing on extensive archival research, Shattering Empires overturns accounts that attribute their demise to conflicting nationalisms, proposing instead the significance of geopolitical competition and the emergence of a new global inter-state order.
