The main output of the project is a book entitled “Ottoman Political Thought Up To The Tanzimat”, available in e-book form. It is a reference study, amassing all the available sources of Ottoman political thought, classifying them into broader ideological currents, and seeking to link them with sociopolitical developments. From the last glimpses of ghaza ideology and the first instances of Persian political philosophy in the fifteenth century till the apologists of Western-style military reform in the early nineteenth century, the book will be an effort to study as comprehensively as possible a multitude of theories and views, focusing in an identification of ideological trends rather than a simple enumeration of texts and authors. The book is being composed by Dr. Marinos Sariyannis, with one chapter written by Dr. Ekin Tuşalp Atiyas.
A much more extended version, containing elaborate analyses of all works, historical timelines, more extended introduction and conclusion sections (including a detailed thematic study of some central notions of the Ottoman political vocabulary), large extracts from representative works, and indices, is to be published by E. I. J. Brill editions within 2016 (in the series: Handbook of Oriental Studies, Section I: The Near and Middle East).
