This book deals with social inequality and power relations in an Ottoman provincial town located in the Anatolian-Syrian frontier. It examines the changing patterns of stratification and status management during a period of long-term economic growth and political realignment in center-periphery relations. It focuses on the resources and composition of the local elite, and modes of elite dominance through the lenses of the town's court records, exploring the legal process and practices of urban representation and government as sites of daily politics and elite power.
