Harl Ú 4 Read 18 hours 44 minsBy understanding the dramatic story of the Ottoman Empire from its early years as a collection of raiders and conuerors to its undeniable power in the 15th and 16th centuries to its catastrophic collapse in the wreckage of the First World War one can better grasp the current complexities of the Middle East Over the course of these 36 enlightening lectures investigate over 600 years of history that covers the nature of Ottoman identi. I had studied Ottoman history years ago at university and purchased this course in order to brush up on the topic Well this lengthy course did serve that purpose because it s uite comprehensive Regretfully however I cannot say that I found anything new or original here I think the professor is trying to operate outside his core competence In fact the course seems in long sections to resemble a Sparks Notes on the multi volume Cambridge History of Turkey and indeed fully one fourth of the sources listed in the bibliography are chapters from that work Most annoying to me though was the lecturer s mangling of Turkish words and names He leads one on to believe he speaks andor reads Turkish but his knowledge of that language is clearly rudimentary at best For anyone who knows basic Turkish the lecturer s pronunciation of Turkish works is painful and cringe producing throughout the course And this is strange because as he mentions in passing several times his wife is Turkish Why didn t he ask her to help him Frankly he seems to be unaware of his mispronunciations of Turkish and other non English words To my mind this fault is rather discrediting Also distracting to the viewer are the lecturer s mannerisms the constantly bouncing left hand the clenching right hand the constant ahs and ums the heavy shuffling when the camera point of view changes I would urge people to buy the audio only version of this course rather than the dvd version except for the fact that the animated maps are extremely informative Overall though I must say that the lecturer s heart is in the right place he is commendably sympathetic to the Turkish point of view Yet as a good historian he is even handed on controversial topics such as the Armenian genocide excesses committed in defense of the Empire So I think Great Courses should give him a do over As it stands I don t think this course will be well received Finally I must comment on the Course Guidebook Clearly it was never edited or proofread before being printed or only in a haphazard and hasty manner It reads like the professor s reading notes from the Cambridge History of Turkey and some of the sentences descent into nonsense statements Moreover a glossary of persons and terms should have been provided

Harl Ú 4 Read Ty the achievements of the Sultan's court and stories of confrontation and cooperation with the West Befitting a story of such epic scope and grandeur every lecture is a treasure trove of historical insights into the people events themes and locales responsible for shaping the story of this often overlooked empire You'll cover everything from Rumi the whirling dervishes and the importance of the sultan's grand viziers to the wars of Sultan Suleiman. I have always thought that if you claim to be an expert in the history geography literature etc of any country you have to know the language of that country pretty pretty well This apparently is not the case with Kenneth W Harl whose wife is even Turkish and it was a huge bug during the entire Audible course of the book His grave mispronounciation of Turkish words names of people or places and phrases was not only incredibly annoying but also created huge misunderstandings and frankly to some odd situations As this was not enough he even tried with Arabic words and names which led to even absurd partsThis is why the pdf was my best friend Due to the mispronounciations due to some mistakes during the audio book and due to the freuent uuhh s and aahh s of the lecturer the audio book was not a pleasant experience at all The pdf albeit in brief and summarised version presented the necessary information a bit understandablyOtherwise the information during the entire course is interesting especially because it is uick and concise That being said it misses large chunks of Ottoman history important details of many characters or places or events overlooks lots of facts Instead Harl focuses on what is apparently important to him and he does not even hide it for instance on Kanun Sultan S leyman or on Enver Pa a or and here I am actually happy about it on Mustafa Kemal Atat rk The last one was the best conclusion possible although spending one uarter of the book on Ottoman Empire talking about Mustafa Kemal is not the greatest choice but let it beThe part I liked the most was the structured and rather objective narrative on the situation with the Ottoman Armenians between 1914 and 1923 He did not directly call it a genocide but he did not deny it being a genocide either And he presented the facts as they were from both sides with both their guilt and innocence although tried to be as brief as possibleHarl also spent some time surprisingly to me on the Balkan nations too Greece of course Romania Serbia Bulgaria Macedonia not North then Which led to a fairly good factology and description of the Balkan Wars and everyone involved in themIn conclusion it is an acceptable studybook for those who are interested in learning a bit about a small part of the major events in the Ottoman Empire from its creation to its dissolution What it lacks is depth amongst all the things I have already mentioned But if you are just starting to learn about one of the greatest empires that had ever existed it is a good course If you just want to brush up on your knowledge it could help you recall some facts And that s it
