Those historians who work in a more or less problem-oriented style, will build on the document-oriented studies already available. The scholar studying Ottoman commerce and urban life, introduced a few pages ago, will attempt to interpret the documents at his/her disposal in the light of broader visions, such as those introduced by Fernand Braudel with his 40 APP R OAC HI N G OTT OM AN H I S TORY studies on the Mediterranean and the history of merchant capitalism (Braudel, 1966, 1979).
