For the first time in English by the author of Peace and Conflict Resolution in Islam comes the biography of a forgotten Anatolian hero.
The story of the obscure figure of Ertugrul Ghazi and his tribe came to life for most people with the popular Turkish TV series 'Resurrection: Ertugrul.' Now, for the first time in the English language, Flamur Vehapi offers a scholarly insight into the historical persona of Ertugrul, the father of Osman I (founder of the Ottoman dynasty). Separating facts from fiction, this brief work provides the reader with a concise biography of this legendary Turkic leader and the Kayi tribe who gave rise to a global empire. This work is a significant piece of research, and the author's deep study of both Turkish and Western sources gives the reader a balanced account on Ertugrul and his tribe. The book contains appendices, a detailed historical timeline, a family tree, as well as a glossary of terms, and biographical information.
