The Burgher and the Whore: Prostitution in Early Modern Amsterdam

The Burgher and the Whore: Prostitution in Early Modern Amsterdam by Lotte van de Pol
English | May 26, 2011 | ISBN: 019921140X | 288 Pages | PDF | 1.22 MB

Amsterdam was, after London and Paris, the third largest city in early modern Europe, and was renowned throughout Europe for its widespread and visible prostitution. Delving deep into a wide range of sources, but making particular use of the transcripts of thousands of trials, The Burgher and the Whore reconstructs Amsterdam's whoredom in detail. The colourful and fascinating descriptions of the prostitutes, their bawds, their clients, and the police shed new light on the cultural, social, and economic conditions of the lives of poor women in a seafaring society.

The Ottoman Empire and Early Modern Europe

The Ottoman Empire and Early Modern Europe by Daniel Goffman
English | April 25th, 2002 | ASIN: B001G8WZ3K, ISBN: 0521459087, 0521452805 | 302 pages | AZW3 | 4.88 MB


Despite the fact that its capital city and over one third of its territory was within the continent of Europe, the Ottoman Empire has consistently been regarded as a place apart, inextricably divided from the West by differences of culture and religion. A perception of its militarism, its barbarism, its tyranny, the sexual appetites of its rulers and its pervasive exoticism has led historians to measure the Ottoman world against a western standard and find it lacking.
