9781780766331: Arming the Sultan: German Arms Trade and Diplomacy in the Ottoman Empire Before World War I (Library of Ottoman Studies)

At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the Ottoman armaments trade was entirely self-sufficient. But by the end of the century, it was almost entirely under German control. How did Germany under Chancellor Bismarck manage to conquer what had until then been an extremely competitive military market? Focusing on the reign of Sultan Abdülhamid between 1876 and 1909, Naci Yorulmaz's book explores the determining factors that influenced the development of the Ottoman armaments market. While acknowledging the importance of political and economic factors, Arming the Sultan concentrates on the personal relationships which shaped the development of the arms trade, including the bonds between arms-makers and the government, between German politicians and Ottoman grandees, and even the private relationships between Kaiser Wilhelm I, Otto von Bismarck and the Sultan. Yorulmaz's innovative book suggests that the value of these relationships has been overlooked, and ensured German success over British, French and American competition.

About the Author:

Naci Yorulmaz is Research Scholar at the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, University of Washington, USA. He holds a PhD from the University of Birmingham.

Review:

'Dr Yorulmaz has produced in this study a first-rate example of the skilful combination of meticulous historical research based on extensive primary documentation in Ottoman Turkish and German with cross-disciplinary analytical rigour combining the latest developments in the fields of development studies, international affairs and comparative diplomatic history and quantitative history based on solid economic data gleaned from archival sources. Though the work concentrates on the personalities of state rulers and their representatives acting at various levels of the state's bureaucratic and diplomatic apparatus, it takes our understanding of historical causation far beyond the level offered by standard historical biography. The work is thus innovative and ground-breaking in research terms while at the same time providing new methodological insights into the study of history "from the top down". Dr Yorulmaz's work will appeal broadly to historians working in a broad range of fields including the comparative study foreign policy, global politics and the art of diplomacy. It is thoroughly researched, provides new factual and statistical material for future study and above all else offers important revisionist insights into state behaviour and the actors participating in great state/ great power rivalry in the decades leading up to the outbreak of the First World War.' Rhoads Murphey, Department of History, University of Birmingham 'Based on a comprehensive reading of Ottoman and German archival sources, Yorulmaz provides fresh and deep analysis of the workings of the arms trade in the Ottoman Empire as an integral part of German strategy starting with Bismarck. Any study of German-Ottoman relations will need to take this work into account. This is scholarship at its finest.' Professor Jonathan Grant, Florida State University

Book Description I.B.Tauris Co. Ltd., United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the Ottoman arms industry was self-sufficient. But from the 1880s to World War I, German arms companies held a monopoly position in the Ottoman arms market. How did Germany manage to conquer what had until then been an extremely competitive market, where British, French and American firms had been dominant for years? While acknowledging the importance of economic and political factors, Arming the Sultan suggests that the main determinants of the German success cannot be ascribed only to the market theory of supply and demand, but lie instead in a range of manipulative instruments built on foundations that were formed through close personal relations. Yorulmaz s innovative book suggests that the value of these relationships has been overlooked, and ensured German success over British, French and American competition. Based on extensive multinational archival research in Germany, Turkey, Britain and the United States, Arming the Sultan explores the decisive impact of arms exports on the formation and stimulation of Germany s expansionist foreign economic policy towards the Ottoman Empire. Making an important contribution to the field of the historiography of the political economy of the international arms trade in the case of Germany s arms sales in the Ottoman Empire, Arming the Sultan reveals that arms exports proved to be an indispensable and integral part of Germany s foreign economic policy during the period under review.
