The Rise of Oriental Travel
English Visitors to the Ottoman Empire, 1580-1720Book - 2004
This book follows four Seventeenth-century Englishmen on their journeys around the Ottoman Empire while the British were, for the first time in history, becoming important players in the Mediterranean. This book shows that hostility between East and West is neither historical nor inevitable, but rather the result of selective memory.
