Sina Akşin Türkiye Tarihi'nin amacını şöyle açıklamaktadır: "... Türkiye'de okullarda ve üniversitelerde okutulan tarih genellikle yüzeysel bir tarihtir. Okullarda öğrenciler için tarih en çekilmez, ezbere dayalı, anlamsız ders durumundadır. Üniversite tarih bölümlerinin puanları, yani tarihçiliğe rağbet, çok düşüktür. Tarih, birçoklarımızın gözünde gerçeğin araştırılacağı, heyecan verici bir bilim dalı değil, kabul edilmiş belirli ideolojik ya da siyasal tutumları destekleyecek kanıtların derleneceği bir alandan ibarettir. İşte biz, bu kitabın, ülkemiz tarihçiliğini hal-i pur melalinden kurtarmaya belki mütevazi bir katkısı olur diye düşündük."
Elinizdeki bu cilt, 1300-1600 dönemi Osmanlı Tarihi'nin ilk üç yüzyılı için vazgeçilmez bir kaynak niteliğindedir.
