    i think it's a good analysis but it's a little dry and largely just makes me want to find more recent scholarship on the same topic i think it's a good analysis but it's a little dry and largely just makes me want to find more recent scholarship on the same topic

    To keep it short, though this book holds some descriptive value it is ultimately severely tainted, in terms of a historiographical work, by the author's own ideology. Lapidus' Marxism has him constantly seeking progressive elements and explaining what thwarted their evolution, and besides that, the use of Marxist terminology (such as the "Sultan's secretariat", or "lumpenproletariat") to describe the events in the 14th and 15th centuries is simply unacceptable.
