Abstrakt EN: Based upon a thorough research of never-published documents housed in 14 European archives including those in Vienna, London, Berlin, Paris and Moscow, the book attempts to offer a new insight into the history of the Eastern Question during Vormärz from Austria?s point of view and introduce the subject as a complex issue of not only diplomatic but also economic, military, religious and social history. As explained in the book, Austrian Chancellor Metternich was fully engaged in each of these spheres and deeply involved in solving various Ottoman affairs. The presented topics concerning the relations between the Ottoman Empire and European Powers should also serve as a platform for refuting the misinterpretations, deep-rooted myths and some prejudices concerning not only Metternich?s diplomatic activities but also his personality.
