Abstract

The article focuses on the concept of enemy alien, a topic so far overlooked in Ottoman historiography. A study of the regime applied to the enemy aliens on the Ottoman homefront (the citizens of the Allied powers) during World War provides us with a new angle to understand the transformation of a cosmopolitan Empire into a nation-state in terms of property regime, law, and political sovereignty.
