God's Shadow

The Ottoman Sultan Who Shaped the Modern World

Alan Mikhail

Selim I (1470–1520), known as Selim the Grim, is the pivotal figure in this revisionist world history that seeks to show how ‘from China to Mexico, the Ottoman Empire shaped the known world at the turn of the sixteenth century’. Mikhail argues that Selim’s vast empire stood at the centre of global politics, economics and war; it influenced crucial events such as Columbus’s voyage to the Americas; and only the Sultan’s premature death prevented his progress into Europe.
