An earnest description of the Muslim and Christian nationalities under the Ottoman Empire. The Illustrated London News described it as "a skillful narrative...The personal element, drawn from intimate mixture with pasha and peasant, invests Mr. Davey's story with enthralling interest, which sustains his readers to the end."

Praise of the First Edition (1897)

"Mr. Davey is in some respects a pioneer in dealing with Ottoman history and tradition. He has not only studied the Turks at home, but he has done something to explore the hitherto almost untouched records of the days of their power to be found in various parts of Europe.It deserves not only to be read, but also to find a permanent place on the bookshelf."--Daily Chronicle

"An earnest, impartial, forcible, and exceedingly interesting narrative."--Daily Mail

"An excellent book, with much valuable and interesting information, faithful and just."--St. James's Gazette

"Full of brilliant writing and useful information."--Daily Telegraph

" 'Did I want to visit the East,' [said] the Baron, 'I would take my Davey. I mean, I should take my Richard Davey with me, represented by The Sultan and His Subjects, the Sultan now having become one of Mr. Davey's subjects.'"--Punch
