Egypt's Adjustment to Ottoman Rule deals with the impact of the Ottoman conquest of Egypt on its political, religious and social institutions, their transition from the Mamluk to the Ottoman regime and further development up to the 17th century.
The relationship between the Ottoman ruling establishment, the local religious groups and the military aristocracy is discussed in the first part of the volume. Waqf documents are a major source for this study which, in the second part, analyzes and compares the endowments of the Ottoman governors and those of the military aristocracy and their respective impact on the urban development and architecture of Cairo in this period. The architecture is documented with 70 photographs and figures.
By integrating architecture and urbanism in the historical analysis of the period under study, this book is important for historians and art historians of Egypt.
