This two volume set is a collection of essays presented at a 2001 conference in Wales on the life and work of the British historian and archaeologist Frederick Willilam Hasluck (1878-1920). Although often overlooked today, Hasluck s studies were based on his first-hand experience at archaeological digs while at the British School in Athens and his later travels in Turkey and the Balkans. The first volume contains essays on Hasluck and the foreign scholars working in and around the Ottoman Empire during the early nineteenth century. It also includes essays on the ethnography of the Alevi-Bektashi sect in Anatolia and the Balkans. The second volume contains essays on syncretic practices, conversion and foreign travellers in Anatolia. The second volume also contains a bibliography of the works of Hasluck and his wife Margaret.
