1516: The Year That Changed the Middle East

Editor: Abdulrahim Abu-Husayn
Provider: AUB Press

The effects of the Ottoman conquest of Bilad al-Sham and Egypt in the spring of 1516 continue to reverberate five centuries later. The conquest and its reverberations were the themes of a conference held at the American University of Beirut in 2016. This volume includes fourteen of the conference papers by scholars of the period, each from a different school of history and region of the world. The collection considers the impact of the events that led up to, and followed, this conquest from a variety of angels, and aims to make a modest contribution to the field of Middle East history.
