The Ottoman Age of Exploration

Giancarlo Casale

  • Beautifully written narrative that highlights the expansionist plans of Ottoman sultans, in conjunction with spies, corsairs, and harem women, into the Indian Ocean.
  • Argues for the inclusion of Ottomans into the Age of Exploration, alongside contemporary overseas empires of Spain and Portugal and rival Islamic states like Mughal India and Safavid Iran.
