The Ottomans ruled much of the Arab World for four centuries. I would note several things. While part of the Ottoman empire, the directness of rule waxed and waned; the large area was ruled mostly with complicated arrangements with local notables. The Ottomans are often thought of as Turkish, but they were rather cosmopolitan, and there were strong Persian influences on culture. Ottoman rule was nominally four hundred years long. The impacts are difficult to measure, but must be huge overall. Arabs were mostly Muslim, although there were many sects.

Bruce Masters's fine book, The Arabs of the Ottoman Empire, surveys the history of the Arab provinces of the Ottoman Empire. Masters has published extensively on various aspects of the Ottoman Arab world, especially Syria, and is thus exceedingly well-qualified to author this work of synthesis based mostly on secondary literature. The book consists of an introduction, seven chapters, and a conclusion. The first four chapters concern what is conventionally referred to as the early modern period, which spans from 1516 to the early 19th century.

The persistence of Ottoman rule over a vast area for several centuries required that some Arabs collaborate in the imperial enterprise. Masters highlights the role of two social classes that made the empire successful: the Sunni Muslim religious scholars, the ulama, and the urban notables, the acyan. Both groups identified with the Ottoman sultanate and were its firmest backers, although for different reasons. The ulama legitimated the Ottoman state as a righteous Muslim sultanate, while the acyan emerged as the dominant political and economic class in most Arab cities due to their connections to the regime. Together, the two helped to maintain the empire.
