Narcotic Empires (Parts I & II)

I’ve here recorded a lecture which was written a few years ago during my undergraduate years: a period of personal obsession with both the Ottoman Empire and the history of Opium.  Part one gives a general overview, historically-speaking, of the state of affairs in Ottoman Turkey following the reign of Suleiman the Great.  Please enjoy the lecture and stay tuned for part two.

Note: For anyone who wants to listen to any of my lectures in their car or on their iPod or whatnot, the online service which I feel is most reliable in ripping MP3s from YouTube is the following: http://www.listentoyoutube.com/index.php
