By Suraiya Faroqhi

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:

Sample text

This applies even to a Turkish student knowing Ottoman, to say nothing of anyone else. Acquiring cultural literacy is thus a long-term process, which takes much longer than the acquisition of a working knowledge of most languages. Things are not made any easier by the fact that Ottomanist history is a relatively new discipline, practiced by a limited number of scholars. As a result, our field does not possess the multitude of books, films or videos which permit a curious spectator to initiate him/herself, for instance, to French cathedrals or Mozart’s music.

But as a second step, he/she may decide to return to the interpretation of a given primary source with questions derived from sophisticated proble´matiques. Cemal Kafadar’s work on Ottoman diaries and letters springs to mind in this context (Kafadar, 1989, 1992).

But usually it is more practical to begin with the secondary literature, in the notes of which we will find references to the relevant primary sources. There is however a danger involved in this convenient approach: an opinion may be widespread in the secondary literature without having much of a basis in fact.
