Useful Enemies: Islam and The Ottoman Empire in Western Political Thought, 1450–1750
Useful Enemies: Islam and The Ottoman Empire in Western Political Thought, 1450–17503 2 5 Scritto da: Noel Malcolm Letto da: Michael Page
In this path-breaking book Noel Malcolm ranges through these vital centuries of East-West interaction, studying all the ways in which thinkers in the West interpreted the Ottoman Empire as a political phenomenon–and Islam as a political religion. Examining the works of many famous thinkers (including Machiavelli, Bodin, and Montesquieu) and many less well-known ones, Useful Enemies illuminates the long-term development of Western ideas about the Ottomans, and about Islam. Malcolm shows how these ideas became intertwined with internal Western debates about power, religion, society, and war.
