Abstract

"The documents edited by H. Şükrü Ilıcak in “Those Infidel Greeks” comprise the English translations of select documents from the Ayniyat Registers on the Greek War of Independence preserved in the Ottoman State Archives. The primary importance of these documents is that they are a clear testimony of the larger imperial context in which the Greek War of Independence evolved and proved successful. The immense mass of information they contain allows the reader to follow on an almost day-to-day basis how an empire tried to suppress a national uprising – the first of its kind in the early nineteenth century."
