    Suleiman I, called 'the Magnificent' by Europeans, ruled as Ottoman sultan from 1520 to 1566, controlling his state firmly, capturing Belgrade and extending his empire as the Christian world struggled to unite against him. In an informed and intelligent study, Clot describes the military and economic successes of a reign which marked the apogee of Ottoman power, setting them in the context of Europe's recent troubled centuries and examining Suleiman's reputation as a lawgiver.
