Looks like the Middle East, North Africa and most of Eastern Europe was in much better condition under the Turkish rule compared to now.

Um, I'm not sure about Eastern Europe, but the Middle East is probably in the worst position in its very ancient history (which the Ottomans only controlled a tiny, teeny, little part of), so saying it was better a 100 years ago is not that amazing of a claim.

^RE Eastern Europe, Ottoman rule wasn't among the worse foreign rules in history, it was essentially a money-grab that kept the countries very underdeveloped, and I can't think of any Eastern European country that didn't start to improve drastically once Ottoman rule weakened or ended.

RE the Near East, *any* time of stability will represent a good period. Wasn't the golden age of the Near East in recent times the period just after the second world war? From what I gather Beirut was an amazing, fascinating city in the period between WWII and the start of the civil war there.

Open source of 500.000 images takes you back through Middle Eastern history


The Qatar Digital Library is soon set to reach some 500.000 images, and it’s increasing by the minute. You don’t want to miss this great (and free) source of information.

The archive is the result of a 10-year old Memorandum of Understanding on Partnerships between the Qatar Foundation, the Qatar National Library and The British Library. “Whenever we’ve spoken to researchers they’ve said that if you digitise and make available the collection that completely transforms the field,” George Weyman, project manager at British Library Qatar Foundation Partnership, explained.
