O'Connor, J. D.  
History of Turkey
Publisher: Moses Warren, 1877 Chicago, IL.
Book. Book condition: Fair. No Jacket. Hardcover 16mo - over 5¾ - 6¾" tall "The author of this History of Turkey believes that no apology is required for endeavoring to give a popular review of such matters relating to the Turks as are most likely to interest the general public at the present time..Instead of a series of disjointed and fragmentary monographs on detached sections of the Eastern Question, he has aimed to give within the compass of a single, inexpensive volume a comprehensive but succinct view of the whole subject.. The author would frankly state that he has been more solicitous to accumulate facts than to propagate theories. He is not a partisan, but a searcher after knowledge, for his own and others' use, without reference to preconceived opinions, whether his or theirs. Like all liberty-loving Americans, he wold be glad to see the area of self-government extended by the liberation of the subject states constituting the Ottoman empire. His wishes in that respect are not, however confined to European Turkey. He recognizes no good reason why the goddess of liberty should not be invoked to spread her benign production over European and Asiatic Russia, as well as Turkey. He deprecates the idea of being cajoled by Russia's pretentious plea of the championship of the Cross against the Crescent; and firmly believes that the world has had enough of religious wars for or against the Cross or Crescent. He entertains the opinion that Russia's self-assumed protectorate of the Christians of Turkey, while it may serve Russia's purposes, fails to protect the Christians, and necessarily irritates the Turks. A high-spirited race will inevitably resent such interference from a rival nation. He accepts, as highly probable, the view that sees in the not distant future the final dissolution of the 'Sick Man of Europe', for a state cannot long be preserved against internal decomposition. The curse of polygamy everywhere debases manhood, and by being unjust to woman the Turks deprive themselves of the stimulus to advancement which the active cooperation and sympathy of the single wife afford to other races of men. Attention is called to the matter and manner of the book. Instead of the dry details of wars, battles and revolutions that compose the usual histories, an effort has been made to describe the manners and customs of the people, as well as the biographies of their rulers. It will be seen that, unlike certain writers of history, the author has found some products of Turkey other than generals and soldiers, Bashi-bazouks, Circassians and assassins.." The war referred to was the Russo-Turkish War (1877-1888). Illustrated with three maps and a genealogical chart. 244 pages. Book is in FAIR condition. Discoloration to most of cover (see photo); some discoloration from aging to text pages; binding tight; pages otherwise clean and complete. One map is detached and laid in. No dust jacket.

Toynbee, Arnold Joseph, 1889-1975  
The Western Question in Greece and Turkey : A Study in the contact of civilizations / by Arnold J. Toynbee

Publisher: Mansfield Center, CT : Martino Pub., 2009..
420 p. Professor Toynbee's specific narrative begins with the landing of Greek troops at Smyrna in May, 1919. His account is very full and detailed, and is based largely upon personal observation. Toynbee's principal conclusion is that the effect of Western diplomacy and of Western ideas, particularly the conception of nationality, upon the East has been disturbing. It was no less so because the West had never fully intended nor realized the consequences. Toynbee's particular concern, from the perspective of 1922, arose from the interposition of Greece at the point of contact between Turkey and Europe. Professor Toynbee builds up a detailed and deeply interesting account of the events and conditions affecting this problem. Reprint of London, Constable and Co., 1922, first edition. Stock# 1044. Fine, new from publisher / no dj.

Appr.: | AUD 53.48 CAD 54.95 EUR 36.23 GBP 29.76 JPY 5,000.00 MXN 625.00 ZAR 500.00
