New Book on Ottoman Espionage: Sultan’ın Casusları: 16. Yüzyılda İstihbarat, Sabotaj ve Rüşvet Ağları

I would like to share with my colleagues that I have published my book on Ottoman espionage in the sixteenth century, a monography partly coming from my dissertation defended five years ago at Georgetown University's Department of History. Unlike the dissertation that deals with the Habsburg and Venetian espionage, this book in Turkish deals entirely with the Ottoman case, through an amalgamation of rich corpus of documentation from Ottoman, Spanish, Venetian, Florentine and other European archives. I would like to thank my supervisors late Prof. Halil Inalcik and Prof.
