CAP, 1998. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. 235mm x 159mm. TheEnglishman abroad is often viewed as the imperialist incarnate, an imageperhaps not so far from certain 19th-century realities. Yet consider theEnglish merchant or diplomat who ventured to Asia in the 17th century. Upagainst the huge, powerful, and refined Ottoman state, he was but a feebleand barely countenanced outsider. Far from bending the Ottoman Empire toEnglish will, it was the English adventurer who had to conform and whosometimes found himself used for the Ottomans' political and militaryends.In this book, historian Daniel Goffman uses a wealth of English andOttoman primary sources to re-create the lives of some of the Englishmenwho adapted or failed to adapt to life, commerce, and politics in theOttoman Empire during the turmoil of the civil wars and interregnum athome. In describing the dramas of intrigue, shifting allegiances, andself-interest in which these Englishmen became embroiled, Goffman showshow they accommodated themselves to a profoundly foreign society. Theyfused themselves into the great diversity that was the Ottoman realm andlaid the groundwork for a commercial and diplomatic network that theirsuccessors would forge into a great empire in Asia. 328 pages. Hardback, with dust jacket. Text in English
