Description - The Regency of Tunis and the Ottoman Porte, 1777-1814 by Asma Moalla
This study of the Tunisian army and government in the time of the pasha-bey Hamm=da the Husaynid (1777-1814) stresses the deeply Ottoman character of these institutions and the political and administrative impact of the jurisdictional authority of the Ottoman Porte on the province in general. The research thus initiates a systematic revision of a major thesis that has prevailed in the body of contemporary research on the Tunisian Regency, i.e., that the latter's administrative and political evolution was underlain by a gradual and irreversible emancipation from the influence and authority of the central Ottoman state. The neglect of the links between Tunis and Istanbul in that historiography has been paralleled, on the Ottomanists' side, by the virtual exclusion of the Maghribi Regencies from the scope of research on the Empire. The present book fits an emerging trend that brings these provinces back within the Ottoman fold.
