9780571278138: The Decline and Fall of the Ottoman Empire

Like Charles II, the sick man of Europe was 'an unconscionable time dying.' Time and time again from the seventeenth century observers predicted the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, yet it outlived all its rivals. As late as 1910 it straddled three continents. Unlike the Romanovs, Hohenzollerns or Habsburgs, the House of Osman was still recognised as an imperial dynasty during the peacemaking which followed the First World War. This book offers a fascinating overview of the Ottoman Empire's decline from the failure to take Vienna in 1683 to the abolition of the Sultanate in 1922 by Mustafa Kemal, after a revolutionary upsurge of Turkish national pride. It deals with constantly recurring problems: competing secular and religious authority; acceptance or rejection of Western ideas; greedy neighbours; population movements; and the strength or weakness of successive Sultans. The book also emphasises the challenges of the early twentieth century, when railways and oilfields gave new importance to Ottoman lands in the Middle East. Recent events have put the problems that faced the later Sultans back upon the world agenda. Names like Basra and Mosul again make the headlines. So, too, do the old empire's outposts in Albania and Macedonia in the west and the mountainous Caucasus in the east. Alan Palmer's narrative reminds us of the long, sad continuity of conflict in the Lebanon. We read of the Kurdish struggle for survival, of Armenian aspirations for independence, of the lingering interests of the Ottomans in their Libyan provinces, and of the Muslim character of Sarajevo in the troubled country that was once Yugoslavia. The Ottoman past has great relevance to the changing patterns of eastern Europe and western Asia in the twentieth century.

About the Author:

Alan Palmer is the author of historical biographies including Tsar Alexander I, Metternich, Bernadotte, Bismarck, Kaiser Wilhelm II and a brief life of Kemal Ataturk. He has written several military and diplomatic histories as well as a book on London's East End, and he is also author of The Penguin Dictionary of Modern HIstory, 1789-1945 and of its companion, The Penguin Dictionary of Twentieth Century History.

From Booklist:

There was something rotten in the Sublime Porte, but as with most processes of political decay, pinpointing the exact cause of disease eludes consensus. Was it the barbaric ritual of garrotting every new dynast's brothers, the better to pre-empt pretenders? Or the elevation of venality as an administrative method? The ethnic strains pulling apart all multinational empires? Or was it simply the events of 1683, when the crescent banner retreated from the walls of Vienna? Palmer begins in that year and narrates the tales of sultans and grand viziers through Kemal Ataturk, the founder of secular Turkey. The vast literature on those two-plus centuries demands an experienced expositor, which Palmer eminently is. The author of a dozen histories (Banner of Battle: The Crimean War [1987]), he accents those military and diplomatic events--wars with Austria and Russia--that pounded the empire to the verge of collapse and earned it the contemptuous moniker "The Sick Man of Europe"; then, of course, the empire found the resources for a remarkable resuscitation. An overview generalists will appreciate. Gilbert Taylor
