Although modern Greek history is closely tied to its experience of the Ottoman period, Greece does not possess a strong body of Ottoman history writing. It has traditionally been coloured by certain polemical topics such as the Ottoman conquest of Asia Minor, the war of Greek independence and the population exchanges of the 1920s. Evangelia Balta’s Ottoman Studies and Archives in Greece surveys the state of Ottoman and Turkish history study in Greece, how it has developed and its future. The first half of Balta’s essays explore the field of modern Greek historiography and place it in the context of the study of the Ottoman Empire. The second group of essays examine the state of Ottoman archives in Greece. This book should be of interest to historians of the Ottoman Empire and modern Greece who wish to understand how historical research has been conducted to date or who wish to undertake research in Greece.
