What’s up in Turkish and Ottoman Studies: new books in 2015 (first half)

While nearly everybody is making preparations for an august vacation far from Başbakanlık Osmanlı Arşivi or Adalar, I decided to gather all the new publications in Turkish Studies (those, I found in my horizone during this year and those in English and Turkish) and put them in a single post. This may somehow play the role of the yearly Türkologische Anzeiger (Turkology Annual) Online list, which has not been updated for a while. I hope, this could be of support for any scholar of Turkey who wants to get a systematic overview of recent publications.

If you have any additions (I’m pretty sure, that there must be many), please, write them in the comments.
Iyi tatiller ve kolay gelsin!
