"Maksudyan’s book successfully rescues the most marginalized of children from the past and triumphantly reminds historians to pay attention to the human terms of modernization."—Journal of the History of Children and Youth

"With a solid structure, a clear methodology, and a well-described narration and imagination of the story from the angle and perspective of children, Maksudyan renders visible their existence and experiences in an affecting and impressive manner."—New Perspectives on Turkey

"As we move from the most intimate, infant foundling, to the larger international context of missionary orphanages, Maksudyan is able to write a rich and engaging history not only through disciplined passion, but also through meticulous research reproduced from one chapter to the next."—Jamila Bargach, author of Orphans of Islam: Family, Abandonment, and Secret Adoption in Morocco

"In a new path-breaking book, Maksudyan locates the most illegible of all subaltern groups in the Ottoman Empire, children, and inscribes them into the historical record."—Elyse Semerdjian, author of Off the Straight Path: Illicit Sex, Law, and Community in Ottoman Aleppo
