The Campaigns of Suleiman I

This paper presents a reassessment of the political and economic ramifications of the Ottoman sultan Suleiman I’s military campaigns

Here is a research paper that was written in Spring 2018 for a survey course on World History at NCC. It deals with the political and economic ramifications of Suleiman I’s military campaigns. Along with my paper on Byzantine-German relations, which was written concurrently during the same season, this was the first research paper that I ever wrote (at the age of 16/17). As such, the argumentative and rhetorical styles are extremely underdeveloped. That being said, I still subscribe generally to the thesis of this work, which is that the Ottoman empire had already begun to decline by the time of Suleiman’s reign.
