The diaries of Morgenthau give us invaluable insights into diplomatic life in Constantinople and Ottoman Turkey at the beginning of the twentieth century. They show how diplomats, government officials, and others interacted and influenced world affairs at a time when the world was in tumult and experienced such momentous developments as the rise of Turkish nationalism, the outbreak of World War I, and the genocide of Ottoman Armenians.
