My research on Imperal Russia's contacts and connections with the Greek world and the Ottoman Levant in the early nineteenth century inspired my interest in how Britain, that other edge of Europe, interacted with the Ottoman Empire during this tumultuous era. Traders, travelers, envoys, consuls, and countless others registered their impressions and observations im myriad writings, providing historians with a treasure-trove for probing the Eastern Question, the nineteenth-century European dilemma of what to do with the surprisingly resilient Ottoman Empire, still possessing strategic lands and vital waterways in the Near East.
