Recent historical studies on the Ottoman Empire have taken for granted that subjects of the Ottoman polity flourished under a so-called "Pax Ottomanica." This edited volume probes the rosy narrative of Ottoman tolerance that has long dominated the discussions. The articles carefully strive to contextualize the many issues that sound like ethnic slurs, racial stereotyping, religious discrimination, misogyny and elitism to modern ears. The goal of the volume is not to prove that Ottoman society was a persecuting one, or that dislike or distrust was its defining characteristic, but to investigate the axes of tension, blemishes, and fractures in the everyday practice of coexistence in a dynamic, multi-religious, multi-confessional and multi-ethnic empire in which difference was the norm rather than the exception.

"Overall this volume thus proposes highly interesting visions of forms of hostility in Ottoman society between the sixteenth and the eighteenth century. ... The volume ... constitute[s] a major contribution ... as well as a precious entry towards an understanding of the tensions at work in Ottoman society." --Nora Lafi, Leibniz-Zentrum Moderner Orient, Berlin, Turkish Historical Review
