Conquete ottomane de l'Egypte (1517): Arriere-plan, impact, echos

Paperback
Conquete ottomane de l'Egypte (1517) propose de mesurer l'impact de la defaite mamelouke face aux Ottomans sur les structures sociales, politiques et culturelles de l'Egypte, ainsi que sur les equilibres geopolitiques en Mediterranee, et d'etudier comment les contemporains percurent l'evenement. Conquete ottomane de l'Egypte (1517) examines how far Selim Ist's victory and the subsequent fall of the Mamluk sultanate altered the political, social and cultural structures in Egypt, how far it transformed the balance of powers in the Mediterranean, and how contemporaries perceived this major event.
