  • Highlights international and domestic efforts to contain ethnonationalism within traditional religious and dynastic institutions in the Ottoman Empire
  • Emphasizes elements of continuity in relations between Russia and Ottoman Christians
  • Investigates the relationship of Russia to Muslim Slavs from Bosnia-Herzegovina and Bulgaria, comparing the importance of religion and ethnicity in Russia and the Balkans from a new angle
  • Offers new analysis suggesting ethnonationalism did not eclipse religious and dynastic identities at the turn of the twentieth century
