Summary
"This catalogue accompanies an exhibition devoted to the artistic and cultural riches of the Turks. Essays by leading scholars trace Turkic history and cultural development, while paintings, sculpture, textiles, metalwork and ceramics reflect the artistic influences that the Turks assimilated, from their early nomadic wanderings to the glories produced during the reign of Suleyman the Magnificent." "The history of the Turks is long and diverse. This book takes the reader on a breathtaking journey from China in the east to the Balkans in the west." "Illustrated with over 370 works of art, drawn principally from the celebrated collections of the Topkapi Saray Museum and the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Art in Istanbul, as well as from collections across Europe, Russia and the United States, this book is a landmark publication and essential reading for anyone interested in the turbulent but vivid history of the Turks."--Jacket
