Ι just finished Sukru Ilicak's (Sukru Ilijak) dissertation "A Radical Rethinking of Empire: Ottoman State and Society during the Greek War of Independence 1821-1826". It a remarkable piece of work based on Ottoman primary sources. It details the ideational and political reaction of the Ottoman state and society to the Greek Revolution, as well as how the revolution triggered the massive political and social transformations that would culminate in the Tanzimat reforms. A must read for those interested in further understanding the Greek Revolution and its impact. It is also a good description of the kind of forces the Ottoman state was able to mobilized against the Greeks before they gave up and called in Mehmet Ali Pasha of Egypt. A good lay down of the character of the final pre-modern Ottoman armies.
