Under the supervision of Dr. Şükrü Ilıcak, a large group of researchers examined a number of archives that had not yet been studied. The two-volume publication includes 700 documents, transcribed from the ottoman language, translated and fully annotated. These are letters dating from June 1821 to 1826, when the Great Powers began their official diplomatic intervention.
The publication is in English, honoring both the international impact of the Greek Revolution – it is clear today that we are talking about a pan-European event – as well as the global academic interest in these documents. In addition to new information about the battles and the events of the Greek War of Independence, these documents come to help historians and scholars understand the concept of revolution during the so-called Age of Revolutions.
