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:

According to such a conception of the historian’s craft, the observation that a given researcher has based him/herself entirely on primary sources is not high praise. Rather it should be regarded as a matter-offact statement if there is little secondary literature available, a situation not unknown to Ottomanist historians. But in all other cases, the observation that the author of a given study has neglected to consult the secondary literature is not praise but rather the opposite.
