Ottoman Civil Officialdom synopsis
In complementing this well-known bureaucratic reform in the Ottoman Empire, Carter Findley focuses the organizational aspects of administrative reform and development on the officials themselves. A study of socialhistory and its cultural and economic ramifications, The New Findley Book reviews the Ottoman achievements and the profound failure of transforming the Old Book Corps into an effective civil service.
Combining the scrutiny of well-documented individuals and the analysis of large groups of officials, Findley considers how civil development has benefited from Ottoman efforts to revitalize the state and protect its interests in an increasingly competitive world. Did reformist initiatives succeed in shaping the elite in expanding social norms in official institutions and their ability to represent Ottoman society? Have potential employees made a profit from educational reform to achieve higher levels of qualification over generations? How did cultural tensions of the reform era affect government officials? To what extent has non-personal action and new ideas of professionalism been replaced by nepotism and proximity? To what extent has the State succeeded in rewarding good service and protecting its officials from changing economic conditions? The answers to such questions highlight the key issues of social integration and cultural change and illustrate the links between economic conditions and changing forms of political activity.
