Brittle relations: A conceptual model for explanation of Iran and Ottoman relations
Iran and Ottoman have had a constant relation with each other as two major neighbors, approximately for six centuries. This relation is well worth considering and evaluating the documents and resources of Iran and Ottoman in an inclusive vision and not based upon one sided or discrimination account. Studying Iran-Ottoman relations more coherently, trace an appropriate model and a framework for this study; because the long time and deep relations between Iran and Ottoman Empire enable us to extract patterns and ideas from the mutual relations and provide them in the form of a conceptual model. The present article is in fact an attempt to formulate a conceptual model of these multidimensional relations between Iran and Ottoman Empire.
