Peter Mentzel

Published by the American Historical Association

SHOT Historical Perspectives on Technology

Peter Mentzel reveals how the introduction of transportation technologies in the Ottoman Empire between 1800 and 1923 was influenced by the political goals of both foreign powers and the Ottoman State. The introduction of steamships and railroads to the Ottoman Empire demonstrates the complex relationship between technological development and imperialism within a specific sociopolitical context.
