Greece, the Hidden Centuries: Turkish Rule from the Fall of Constantinople to Greek Independence Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For almost 400 years, between the fall of Constantinople and the Greek War of Independence, the history of Greece is shrouded in mystery, distorted by Greek writers and begging the question: What was life really like for the Greeks under Ottoman rule?  In this wide-ranging yet concise history, David Brewer explodes many of the myths about Turkish rule of Greece. He places the Greek story in wider, international context and casts fresh light on the dynamics of power not only between Greeks and Ottomans, but also between Muslims and Christians, both Orthodox and Catholic, throughout Europe. This absorbing account of a crucial period will ensure that the history of Greece under Turkish rule is no longer hidden.

About the Author

David Brewer is the author of The Flame of Freedom: The Greek War of Independence, 1821-1833. After studying Classics at Oxford University he divided his working life between teaching, journalism and business before dedicating himself to the study of the history of Greece.
