Virginia H. Aksan’s research focuses on comparative war and society, especially Ottoman, Austrian & Russian, 18th-mid-19th centuries, including the study of frontiers, the exchange of ideas and technology, and the role of the intermediaries, eastern and western, in the discussion and perception of governance and reform. Her books include “An Ottoman Statesman in War and Peace”, “Ottomans and Europeans: Contacts and Conflicts” and “Ottoman Wars 1700-1870: An Empire Besieged.”
