Read full description of the books:



Rival del España durante siglos por la hegemonía en el Mediterráneo y tan mentado como poco conocido, el Imperio otomano llegó a extenderse desde Arabia hasta el Danubio y desde el Mar Negro hasta el Magreb. Dentro de sus fronteras convivieron pueblos de cultura muy diferente -griegos, albaneses, kúrdos, tártaros, árabes...- que conservaron sus características definitorias. Todos ellos, con sus tradiciones, costumbres y supersticiones, desfilan por esta obra de Jason Goodwin compartiendo páginas con la magnificencia de Solimán el Magnífico, la pulcritud de la burocracia otomana, el terror que sus ejércitos provocaban entre sus enemigos, las extravagancias de los jenízaros y de no pocos sultanes, las intrigas del serrallo, el desarrollo de ciudades como Salónica -centro destacado de la comunidad sefardí- Sarajevo, Belgrado, Ragusa y, por supuesto, Estambul, en una panorámica histórica completa del mosaíco étnico, cultural y religioso que fue el dominio de Los Señores del Horizonte.

Read information about the author

Ebook Los señores del horizonte read Online! Jason Goodwin's latest book is YASHIM COOKS ISTANBUL: Culinary Adventures in the Ottoman Kitchen.
He studied Byzantine history at Cambridge University - and returned to an old obsession to write The Gunpowder Gardens or, A Time For Tea: Travels in China and India in Search of Tea, which was shortlisted for the Thomas Cook Award. When the Berlin Wall fell, he walked from Poland to Istanbul to encounter the new European neighbours. His account of the journey, On Foot to the Golden Horn, won the John Llewellyn Rhys/Mail on Sunday Prize in 1993.

Fascinated by what he had learned of Istanbul's perpetual influence in the region, he wrote Lords of the Horizons: A History of the Ottoman Empire, a New York Times Notable Book. 'If you want to learn,' he says, 'write a book.' Lords of the Horizons was described by Time Out as 'perhaps the most readable history ever written on anything.'

Having always wanted to write fiction, he became popular as the author of the mystery series beginning with The Janissary Tree, which won the coveted Edgar Award for Best Novel in 2007. Translated into more than 40 languages, the series continues with The Snake Stone, The Bellini Card, An Evil Eye and The Baklava Club. They feature a Turkish detective, Yashim, who lives in 19th century Istanbul.

YASHIM COOKS ISTANBUL is an illustrated collection of recipes, inspired by the cookery in his five published adventures.
