Gabor Agoston: Title TBA

Gábor Ágoston is Associate Professor of History at Georgetown University. He received his M.A. from the University of Budapest and his Ph.D. from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. His research focuses on Ottoman military, economic and social history from the fifteenth through the late eighteenth centuries, early modern Hungarian history, and the comparative study of the Ottoman and Habsburg empires. His latest book, Guns of the Sultan: Military Power and the Weapons Industry in the Ottoman Empire (Cambridge University Press, 2005) challenges the sweeping generalizations of Eurocentric and Orientalist scholarship regarding Ottoman and Islamic societies.
