For Balkan Academic News I have recently reviewed two new books dealing with Latin Catholics/Europeans in the cities of the late Ottoman Empire, namely Oliver Jens Schmitt's "Levantiner. Lebenswelten und Identitaeten einer ethnokonfessionellen Gruppe im osmanischen Reich im langen 19. Jahrhundert" and Sezim Sezer Darnault's "Latin Catholic Buildings in Istanbul. A Historical Perspective (1839-1923)". The full reviews are available online here.
