Marc David Baer: The World Was Theirs

At the height of their power, the Ottoman sultans governed almost a quarter of Europe’s land mass. During the Renaissance they were Europe’s biggest trading partner and even Henry VIII liked to dress in Ottoman styles. Find out how the Eastern dynasty shaped the West in a talk with Marc David Baer, professor at the London School of Economics and author of The Ottomans, a book described as ‘magnificent’ by the Financial Times.
