Very interesting and informative how Ms Peirce would explain How Ottoman Tradition Handled Concubines Ottoman tradition handled concubines then mother s of sons rior to Roxelana and then how she broke the mold and helped to create a new tradition for women I learned a great deal from reading this book and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in the Ottomans Roxelana and SuleimanMs this book and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in the Ottomans Roxelana and SuleimanMs has done a wonderful job but she of course has the same Micromégas: Histoire philosophique pitfalls of most authors who chose to write about women during this timeeriod in that there just isn t a ton of information Very little survives of Roxelana s own writings and no one bothered to write down for osterity her thoughts or beliefs What we have are a small number of letters she Wrote And Some Diplomatic Correspondences From People and some diplomatic correspondences from eople had their own agendas and biases Many times Ms Peirce is forced to make educated guesses or assumptions about Roxelana s motives or involvements in certain events because there isn t anything available from Roxelana s own writings I walked away from the book sad because of how monumental this woman was for the Ottomans and for their traditions and cultures and yet so very little is known or written about her If I hadn t watched The Magnificent Century I am not sure I ever would ve known she even existed It s hard not to walk away from the book a little melancholy for all the lost history It was like a boring list of historical dat.
