The Edinburgh History of the Greeks, 1453 to 1768: The Ottoman Empire
Molly Greene provides a new interpretation of the Ottoman centuries, drawing extensively on recent Greek scholarship. Moving beyond old models of a cohesive and autonomous Greek community living behind communal walls, she demonstrates the variety of Greek experience under the sultans and asks what Ottoman subjecthood meant for Christians in general, and Greeks in particular. Larger debates in Ottoman historiography are also integrated into the history of the Greeks. The book will appeal not only to those interested in the Greek experience, but Ottoman historians as well..
