Reviews & Quotes
"...a pioneering and fascinating work..."
Bryn Mawr Classical Review (2006)
"a monumental undertaking rarely seen in Greek studies and even less so in the English language...The edition itself is of very high quality'"
Modern Greek Studies Review (2006)
"The volume is an important example of the potential of intensive archaeological investigations of the recent past, with lessons for archaeologists of the more distant past and for historians interested in communities without history. For scholars intrigued and committed to expanding archaeology to include the recent past, whether to continue the archaeological analysis to the doorstep of the present or as part of the archaeology of modernity, Zarinebaf, Bennet, and Davis provide an important case study that fills gaps in the narrative for Ottoman Greece and is an important incentive for studies of other regions of the Ottoman realm. Those interested in the developments of Ottoman archaeology will be rewarded with the historic details and the rich possibilities indicated by this research.'"
American Journal of Archaeology (2006)
"this sumptuous, beautifully produced volume is a tremendous achievement... All who subsequently work with Ottoman tax documents will need to strive to meet the high standards set by this brilliant piece of work.'"
