“This book will be the seminal work on the theme of coexistence. The dissolution of coexistence, which is also a subject of this volume, is an easier subject to cover, but by understanding the terms of coexistence one is better placed to understand the crises and violence that destroyed them too… I cannot think of a better study on the micro-dynamics of difference.” · Nicholas Doumanis, University of New South Wales, Australia
In Southeast Europe, the Balkans, and Middle East, scholars often refer to the “peaceful coexistence” of various religious and ethnic groups under the Ottoman Empire before ethnonationalist conflicts dissolved that shared space and created legacies of division. Post-Ottoman Coexistence interrogates ways of living together and asks what practices enabled centuries of cooperation and sharing, as well as how and when such sharing was disrupted. Contributors discuss both historical and contemporary practices of coexistence within the context of ethno-national conflict and its aftermath.
