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:
