The Crescent and the Eagle: Ottoman Rule, Islam and the Albanians, 1874-1913

Bloomsbury Publishing, 25 okt. 2006 - 272 sidor
The Crescent and the Eagle examines from an Ottoman perspective the awakening of Albanian national identity from the end of the 19th century to the outbreak of World War I – a period of intense nationalism in the Balkans. Drawing on Ottoman and European archival material, the book undermines the customary negative stereotypes of Ottoman rule, offering a more nuanced interpretation. Gawrych argues that the Ottoman-Albanian relationship was not a simple adversarial struggle between Turkish rule and Albanian resistance but a complex set of intertwined and sometimes conflicting allegiances and identities.
