Description

The cultural, social, political, and demographic studies of Bosnia in this volume encompass more than four hundred years of history and offer a broad, multidimensional view of this vital Ottoman territory. Written by native and foreign specialists, these studies evaluate and seek also to rescue and preserve the legacy of the extraordinarily important buildings, manuscripts, and other cultural artifacts destroyed during the war of 1992-1995.
Distributed for the International Journal of Turkish Studies
