Chapter Summary

This introduction covers the key concepts discussed in the book Well-Connected Domains: Towards an Entangled Ottoman History, which focuses on trade, warfare, and diplomacy as well-established objects of the study of "international" connections. The book is divided into three parts. The first part outlines some of the key components which provided a significant share of the institutional framework that shaped the Ottoman Empire's linkages with other parts of the world, and primarily its European neighbors. The second part concentrates on the dual issue of the construction and management of identity as both an expression and a formative element of connectedness. The third part explores the well-connected search for responses to the well-connected challenges faced by the Ottoman state and society in the "long" nineteenth century.

Keywords: diplomacy; Europe; Ottoman Empire; trade; warfare
