New textbook for those including Ottomans in early modern survey courses

Re: Origins of Textbook Writing as "Service" in Higher Education?

I wonder if this is touched upon in Barry Joyce's 2015 book, The First U.S. History Textbooks: Constructing and Disseminating the American Tale in the Nineteenth Century.

Our book history colleagues over at SHARP (The Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing) may be able to shed some light on this too.
