Masks And Faces in Ottoman History



“Masks and Faces in Ottoman History” is a pioneering work that shows how history can be made attractive to large audiences without compromising scientific honesty. As one reader aptly put it: ‘Let’s see which roof you will bring down on us in this book?’ If the roofs are so poorly constructed, it is not the fault of the mischievous elephant hiding among my books. “What can an elephant do if we don’t know who built the roof over our heads and how?” Mustafa Armağan invites his readers to a breathless adventure in the labyrinths of history in his book “Masks and Faces in Ottoman History”, which is sure to cause controversy. It sheds light on centuries-old debates such as Baltacı-Katerina with a political analysis. He claims that the article about fratricide attributed to Fatih was added to the Kanunname later. He proves with evidence that Çanakkale was actually “overtaken”. It sheds light on the interesting relationship between Sultan Abdülaziz and the famous composer Wagner and reveals that Istanbul was conquered on June 7, not May 29. Moreover, it manages to do all this in a fluent, comfortable and literary style, paving the way for a new approach that we have not seen in popular history writing for a long time.
