Abstract

Available in English for the first time in its entirety, this seminal work by the late german historian is indispensable for understanding the history of Palestine in the decades following the introduction of Ottoman Tanzimat (reforms). Based on archival and consular materials, the studies show the extent to which the process of modernization and integration into the world economic system had already begun in the crucial period before the first wave of Jewish immigration in the early 1880s. 

The book was originally published in German by F. Steiner Verlag (Wiesbaden, 1986) under the title: Palastina im Umbruch, 1856-1882.
