About the Authors
  • A participant in the Greek struggle for independence alongside Lord Byron, the philhellene George Finlay (1799–1875) lent his support to the newly liberated nation while diligently studying its past. The monographs he published in his lifetime covered the history of Greece since the Roman conquest, spanning two millennia. His two-volume History of the Greek Revolution (1861) is reissued separately in this series. Edited by the scholar Henry Fanshawe Tozer (1829–1916) and published in 1877, this seven-volume collection brought together Finlay's histories, incorporating significant revisions. Notably, Finlay gives due consideration to social and economic factors as well as high politics. Volume 6 covers the Greek war of independence between 1821 and 1827. Finlay begins by describing the various ethnic and social groups of Greece and its neighbours as well as the structure of the Ottoman administration. He then covers events from the initial uprisings to the election of Ioannis Kapodistrias as head of state.
