Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of the book The Ottoman Middle East: Studies in Honor of Amnon Cohen, which includes many documents related to Jews and translated into Hebrew. The book aims to reflect the rich research conducted by Cohen in Ottoman studies over the last decades. It deals with four major topics that characterize much of Cohen's work: Ottoman Palestine and its various communities; the neighboring Arab provinces; the Jewish communities of the Ottoman Empire, and the social and economic history of the Ottoman Empire in general. On the contrary, his continuing fascination with the history of Ottoman Palestine, as well his new interest in the current upheavals in contemporary Iraq, have triggered him further to explore documents from the past and to offer innovative insights and interpretations of the region's history.

Keywords: Amnon Cohen; Hebrew; Jews; Ottoman Empire; Ottoman Palestine
