Istanbul: City of Majesty at the Crossroads of the World

Istanbul: City of Majesty at the Crossroads of the World

Author: Thomas F. Madden
Price: $32.00
Binding: Hardcover
Description: One of Time?s 12 Books for the History Buffs on Your Holiday Gift List  

The first single-volume history of Istanbul in decades: a biography of the city at the center of civilizations past and present.

For more than two millennia Istanbul has stood at the crossroads of the world, perched at the very tip of Europe, gazing across the shores of Asia. The history of this city--known as Byzantium, then Constantinople, now Istanbul--is at once glorious, outsized, and astounding. Founded by the Greeks, its location blessed it as a center for trade but also made it a target of every empire in history, from Alexander the Great and his Macedonian Empire to the Romans and later the Ottomans. At its most spectacular Emperor Constantine I re-founded the city as New Rome, the capital of the eastern Roman empire, and dramatically expanded the city, filling it with artistic treasures, and adorning the streets with opulent palaces. Around it all Constantine built new walls, truly impregnable, that preserved power, wealth, and withstood any aggressor--walls that still stand for tourists to visit.
      From its ancient past to the present, we meet the city through its ordinary citizens--the Jews, Muslims, Italians, Greeks, and Russians who used the famous baths and walked the bazaars--and the rulers who built it up and then destroyed it, including Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the man who christened the city "Istanbul" in 1930. Thomas F. Madden's entertaining narrative brings to life the city we see today, including the rich splendor of the churches and monasteries that spread throughout the city.
     Istanbul draws on a lifetime of study and the latest scholarship, transporting readers to a city of unparalleled importance and majesty that holds the key to understanding modern civilization. In the words of Napoleon Bonaparte, "If the Earth were a single state, Istanbul would be its capital."

Istanbul: The Ultimate Istanbul Travel Guide By A Traveler For A Traveler: The Best Travel Tips; Where To Go, What To See And Much More

Istanbul: The Ultimate Istanbul Travel Guide By A Traveler For A Traveler: The Best Travel Tips; Where To Go, What To See And Much More

Author: Lost Travelers
Binding: Kindle Edition
Description: Congratulations! You?ve Found The Ultimate Travel Guide To Istanbul.

Why You Need Lost Travelers

First, we would like to thank you for considering Lost Travelers as your guide book. Allow us to explain our beginnings and the reason we created Lost Travelers. Lost Travelers was created due to one simple problem that other guides on the market did not solve; loss of time. Considering it?s the 21st century and everything is available online, why do we still purchase guidebooks? To save us time! That?s right.

Since the goal is to be efficient and save time, we did not understand why there are several guidebooks on the market that are of 500 to 1000 page? long. We do not believe one needs that much bluff to get an overview of the location and some remarkable suggestions. Considering many guidebooks on the market are filled with ?suggestions? that were sponsored for, we have decided to take a different approach and provide our travelers with an honest opinion and decline any sort of sponsorship. This simply allows us to cut off any nonsense and create our guides the Lost Travelers style.

Our mission is simple; to create an easy to follow guide book that outlines the best of activities to do in our limited time at the destination. This easily saves you your most valuable asset; your time. You no longer need to spend hours looking through a massive book or spend hours searching for information on the internet as we have completed the whole process for you. The best part is we provide you our e-guides for one-third the price of the leading brand, and our paper copy for only half the price.

?The World Is A Book And Those Who Do Not Travel Only Read One Page?
- St. Augustine

Thanks again for considering us, we hope you enjoy!
