In this section the author outlines the major challenges that Istanbul faced during the eighteenth century. Intensifying rural migration increased the overall population and swelled the numbers of the poor and the underclass.
This process, in relation to the deteriorating economic conditions due to frequent wars, wartime taxation, and high inflation rates, generated two main results. First, it amplified the numbers of criminal elements within the city and boosted the crime rates.
Second, in the context of the consumption-and pleasure-oriented culture of the socio-economic elite during the Tulip Age--referring to the reign of Ahmed III , or, more specifically, to the tenure of the grand-vizier Ibrahim Pasha --the increasing numbers of marginalized elements led to social polarization and violent conflicts. According to Zarinebaf, the two major popular upheavals of the time--the rebellion against Sultan Mustafa II and the rebellion against Sultan Ahmed III--should be understood in Author: Bogac A.

Fariba Zarinebaf maps the history of crime and punishment in Istanbul over more than one hundred years, considering transgressions such as riots, prostitution, theft, and murder and at the same time tracing how the state controlled and punished its unruly population. Taking us through the city's streets, workshops, and houses, she gives voice to ordinary people - the man accused of stealing, the woman accused of prostitution, and the vagabond expelled from the city. She finds that Istanbul in this period remains mischaracterized - in part by the sensational and exotic accounts of European travelers who portrayed it as the embodiment of Ottoman decline, rife with decadence, sin, and disease.
