Overview
French Revolutionaries in the Ottoman Empire presents an unusual aspect of the French Revolution: a revolution 'on silent feet', a revolution favouring moderation and compromise. The volume expands and complements our understanding of the French Revolution as a radical transformation which affected people not just in the territories directly ruled by the French state, but all over the world. It offers a unique case study of how the Revolution 'worked' abroad, how it was applied in the setting of the Ottoman Empire, a state commonly regarded as the very embodiment of Oriental despotism by Enlightenment thinkers. In doing so it sheds new light on the global repercussions of the French Revolution and on French revolutionary foreign politics and diplomacy.
