9789004144224: Legitimizing the Order: The Ottoman Rhetoric of State Power (Ottoman Empire and Its Heritage, Vol. 34)

A dynasty that ruled for more than six centuries certainly developed many strategies to confront “legitimacy crises” and undertook various endeavors to legitimize their rule.

After the introduction that establishes a theoretical framework for examining the Ottoman state’s legitimacy, the present volume deploys into three sections. “The Well-Founded Order” deals with the question of how the Ottomans imagined the order of their polity and how they tried to live up to this self-representation.

“Religiosity and Orthodoxy” turns to the question of religiosity and orthodoxy as defined by Ottoman political theory and how these concepts related to the issue of legitimacy. The last section discusses how the Ottoman notions of legitimacy were exposed to criticism, discussion or simply to transformations in situations of crisis, especially in the 18th and 19th centuries.

About the Author:

Hakan Karateke, Dr. phil (1998) in Turkology, Bamberg University, Germany, teaches at Harvard University. His dissertation entitled Long Live the Sultan! Ottoman Ceremonies in the 19th Century was published in 2004 in Turkish.

Review:

...the book fills a lacuna in Ottoman historiography by its attempt to understand the complexities and evolving nature of legitimacy throughout the entire life span of Ottoman dynastic and imperial establishment. The authors are to be credited for their contributions, all of which will surely pave the way for future studies and discussions."
