This discussion therefore seeks to dissect these external challenges and how the empire responded to them.
Reid explains that in the period between 1878 and 1900, the Ottoman Empire was still grappling with the negative aftereffects of its previous involvement with war against her external enemies, Poland, Persia, Russia and Austria in the period between 1768 and 1774.

At the Battle of Navarino, the Anglo-French destroyed the Egyptian and Ottoman fleets, as the Russian troops captured swathes of the empire’s territories upto to Erdine.

The geographical and the temporal features that prepared the plots for the rises of these two empires were different in nature. When the fragmentation of the Seljuk Sultanate of Rum after the Mongol invasion in Anatolia in the late 13th century planted the seed of the Ottoman Empire in one of the Beyliks, the fragments of the Turkish Anatolia, the Safavid Empire was born in much calmer environment that was quite favorable to the expansion of the influence of Safi-al-Din who first established the Safavid order.
Ottoman values and norms surfaced and evolved throughout the existence of the Empire. They survive until now; influencing many facets of current Turkish society (Mansel 1996, 43).

The human mind has resorted to varied genres and forms to narrate symbolize and pass on the battle of the forces of the good and the evil.

I have managed to determine that, by instinct, songs with a fast tempo, rhyme, and black rhythm suit my senses as though they could relate with my crisis at the moment and make me someone passionately inclined to deal with the trouble.
One of the major impacts on the growth of the economy of the Ottoman Empire was the discovery and exploitation of the New World (America) by the European states, which damaged the economy as a result of inflation, caused by the inflow of gold, silver, and other precious metals.
The Empire was situated in the Middle East and West, and interacted with both the East and the West throughout its six-century history . The Ottoman Empire was established by the tribe of Kinsik Oghuz Turks, in western Anatolia and was ruled by the Osmanl dynasty, the descendants of those Turks.
