Inspired by philhellenism as a law student, George Finlay (1799–1875) took part in the Greek war of independence alongside Lord Byron. While later researching the history and archaeology of the country, Finlay also sought improvements to the administration and economic development of the independent Greek state. Published in 1861, this two-volume account of the Greek revolution, including its military conflicts and political consequences, traces events up to the creation of a constitutional monarchy. Volume 1 gives an overview of Greek life under Ottoman rule, setting the scene for the initial uprisings, and carries the history up to the end of 1822. Volume 2 covers the civil wars among the Greeks, the creation of the Greek monarchy, and the 1843 unrest that led to a national constitution. Finlay's seven-volume History of Greece (1877) is also reissued in this series.
