The Liquid Continent: A Mediterranean Trilogy: Volume III: Istanbul.

Woodsworth, Nicholas.

Picture of The Liquid Continent: A Mediterranean Trilogy: Volume III: Istanbul.
From his place of vantage in a former Benedictine monastery overlooking the Golden Horn he looks at the social life of a city that was once the capital of a vast and ethnically complex empire. The citizens he meets are a diverse lot, all eager to have their say. 'He finds in today's Istanbul a city that offers solutions to the future of globalisation.'

Description

Under the Ottomans, who ruled the eastern Mediterranean for 500 years, cosmopolitan life in Istanbul took a particularly vigorous and productive form, creating a web of connection and identity that is conspicuously absent in our own era.
