Ottoman Diplomacy looks into the later history of the Ottoman Empire in the time of Abdülhamid II during the later 19th century. This corresponds to a period when the empire was in decline with consequent loss of territory, prestige and diplomatic independence. The Ottoman Empire experienced decline primarily as an international phenomenon, which not only affected the country’s own people and immediate neighbours but also threatened the stability of the whole international system. Ottoman Diplomacy, while investigating this period of turmoil for the Ottoman Empire, also sheds light on the international relations and diplomacy of the time.
