Product Overview

Based on archival research, The Shackles of Modernity: Women, Property, and the Transition from the Ottoman Empire to the Greek State, 1750-1850 investigates the relationship between women and property, as well as their broader socioeconomic status in Greek societies in the century that culminated with the establishment of the Greek state. Drawing on legal documents in notarial archives from four different regions (Naxos, Mykonos, Athens, and Leonidio), this book focuses on important aspects of the rights of Greek women in the late eighteenth century, the decade-long Greek War of Independence, and the first decades of the Greek state.
