Rifa‘at Abou-El-Haj (Ph.D., Princeton, 1963) started teaching at California State University, Long Beach, in 1964, and moved to the State University of New York (SUNY), Binghamton, in 1992. He is the author of numerous articles and book chapters, as well as two books, The 1703 Rebellion and the Structure of Ottoman Politics (1984; forthcoming in Turkish in 2011) and Formation of the Modern State: The Ottoman Empire, Sixteenth to Eighteenth Centuries (1991; 2nd ed., 2005), which was hailed as “a history classic” and also translated to Turkish; and the co-editor of The Ottoman City and Its Parts: Urban Structure and Social Order (1991). His work has been considered as belonging to “the short but distinguished critical tradition in Middle Eastern history that is associated with names such as Edward Said and Maxime Rodinson.”
This volume grew out of a conference that was convened in Abou-El-Haj’s honor by Donald Quataert and Baki Tezcan in April 2010 at SUNY, Binghamton, where his colleagues and students presented papers and reflected on his impact on Ottoman and Middle Eastern/North African Studies. Quataert is Distinguished Professor of History at SUNY, Binghamton, and the author of numerous books and articles, including The Ottoman Empire, 1700-1922; and Tezcan is Associate Professor of History, and Religious Studies, at the University of California, Davis, and the author of The Second Ottoman Empire: Political and Social Transformation in the Early Modern World.
