This talk analyzes how insecurity of property rights and risks of political lives shaped the Ottoman order as well as attitudes of people towards life and death from the fifteenth to the mid-nineteenth centuries​.

Ali Yaycioglu is a historian of the Ottoman Empire intersecting Early-Modern Europe and the Muslim World. His book, Partners of the Empire: Crisis of the Ottoman Order in the Age of Revolutions (Stanford University Press, 2016) is an attempt to rethink the Ottoman experience within the global context of the revolutionary age in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
