By Suraiya Faroqhi

Излагая методы, пользуясь которыми, для интерпретации истории Османской империи можно использовать первичные и вторичные источники, автор обращается к студентам и исследователям в этой и смежной областях и дисциплинах, чтобы облегчить знакомство с такими документами. Рассматривая как архивные, так и нарративные источники, автор объясняет, как они подготавливались, чтобы убедить читателей применять критический подход к их данным, и не считать априори, что всё зарегистрированное в официальных документах является обязательно точным или даже истинным. В то время как книга, по существу, может использоваться в качестве руководство по сложной дисциплине для начинающих исследователей, опытные тюркологи могут найти в ней много новых и провокационных интерпретаций.Образцы сканов:

While Ottoman history in the past few decades was often an arcane endeavour of little interest to anybody but its practitioners, the debate on world systems theory has made it much easier for Ottomanists to enter a broader historical discussion. 6 DE SI GNING RE S EA RCH I N OT TOM A N H IST ORY: SOM E PR EL I MI NAR Y RE F L EC T IONS As has become apparent from the preceding paragraphs, working as an historian implies questioning our own motives. This is easier said than done, for usually we need a certain distance before motivations, our own or those of our predecessors, will become visible to us.

Yet in spite of an abundance of source material, it would seem that Anatolia constitutes one of the former Ottoman provinces most neglected by historians, and I hope to contribute toward correcting this imbalance. Moreover there exists a flourishing secondary literature on the former Arab, Greek, Serbian, Bosnian and Bulgarian provinces of the Ottoman Empire in the languages of the relevant modern nations. Unfortunately I do not read any of these, and my discussion remains confined to works in Ottoman and modern Turkish, English, French and German.

Other more or less hostile observers will prefer to speak of fashion changes, thereby assimilating paradigm changes to the ‘frivolous’ occupations of ladies or young men with money to spend.
