9780815632856: Imperial Citizen: Marriage and Citizenship in the Ottoman Frontier Provinces of Iraq (Gender and Globalization)

Imperial Citizen examines the intersection between Ottoman colonialism, control of the Iraqi frontier through centralization policies, and the impact of those policies on Ottoman citizenship laws and on the institution of marriage. In an effort to maintain control of the Iraqi province, the Ottomans adapted their 1869 citizenship law to prohibit marriages between Ottoman women and Iranian men. This prohibition was an attempt to contain the threat that the Iranian Shi'a population represented to Ottoman control of their Iraqi provinces.

In Imperial Citizen, Kern establishes this 1869 law as a point of departure for an illuminating exploration of an emerging concept of modern citizenship. She unfolds the historical context of the law and systematically analyzes the various modifications it underwent, pointing to its farreaching implications throughout society, particularly on landowners, the military, and Sunni women and their children. Kern's fascinating account offers an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the Ottoman Iraqi frontier and its passage to modernity.

Review:

"Imperial Citizen is a vital addition to the fields of modern Ottoman history and modern Ottoman political theory. It fills key gaps in the literature and provides an essential case study in scholarship on citizenship." --Ruth A. Miller, University of Massachusetts-Boston
