Chapter Summary

This chapter refers to the participation of the inhabitants of the island of Samos in the Greek revolution in island very close to the coast of Asia Minor and without permanent Muslim population. It explores the questions concerning the ideological prism through which the Ottoman officials viewed the revolution, the repressive methods that they used and the framework of legitimacy in which they were incorporated, as well as the inherent weaknesses of the Ottoman state mechanism. In the eighteenth century and the first decades of the nineteenth one of the central issues of concern to the Ottomans was responsible for the configuration of the relationships of the central government with the players in the periphery (ayan) as well as parallel effort to control the dissemination power outside the narrow confines of the High Porte. The original context of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Greek revolution; Ottoman state mechanism; rise of ayan
