Revolution on the Morea: The Peloponnesus during the Second Turkocracy (1715–1821)

Die Peloponnes während der zweiten Turkokratie (1715–1821)

In 1821, revolution erupted in the Peloponnesus, culminating in a long war of independence and ultimately leading to the foundation of the independent nation of Greece. Drawing on theoretical approaches from revolution research while particularly focusing on the socio-economic and political structures of pre-revolutionary Peloponnesus, the author lends insight as to why revolution took place then and there.
