Reviews

'...this scholarly study is a detailed but clear opening for anyone interested in Greek, Turkish and Balkan issues.' - Time Out: Istanbul

'...The Last Ottomans offers important insights into a little-known period of a group, which has largely escaped the attention of historians until now. As a result of painstaking research, it succeeds to present the Muslim minority against the backdrop of this dramatic period in Greek history.' - Sotirios Dimitriadis, SOAS, UCL Discovery
